The University of Michigan School of Education is launching a new Teaching residency program modeled after medical training programs to prepare and train Detroit’s next generation of educators. Beginning in fall 2020, newly certified teachers who have completed U-M’s undergraduate or graduate teacher preparation program will have the opportunity to teach alongside veteran educators in the primary and secondary schools as they continue their training and help new student teachers learn the profession.
Detroit has always been one of the most artistic and culturally significant cities, and both the Marygrove Conservancy and the Detroit Office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship (Detroit ACE) aim to support and invest in the city’s creative industry, arts and culture organizations and artists.
The Marygrove Conservancy in partnership with Detroit ACE are conducting a comprehensive census to determine the breadth and depth of Detroit’s creative workforce, making it easier to improve arts and culture programming and secure funding. All members of Detroit’s artist community are invited to complete the online census. Take a few moments to claim your creativity! Take the Detroit Creative Economy Census.
