Marygrove College Alumni Association


The Marygrove College Alumni Association has served for over 90 years as a volunteer board representing Marygrove alumni. Our purpose is to foster unity and loyalty among alumni members, to support opportunities for lifelong learning, and to promote the legacy of Marygrove College. We continue to be united in our experiences and memories of Marygrove, and the friendships and opportunities that Marygrove made possible for us. We value the ongoing support of the IHM Community and Leadership team, especially since the College closing in 2019. We now look forward to a strong partnership with the Marygrove Conservancy.

Detroit Creative Economy Census

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.
