University of Detroit Mercy is suspending or canceling all student events, external events and events with 100 or more participants based on Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s recommendations for controlling the spread of the coronavirus. Unfortunately, this includes Detroit Mercy’s Alumni Achievement Spirit Awards scheduled for Friday, April 24.
We feel, however, it is important to celebrate the achievements of these distinguished alumni, and have rescheduled the awards dinner for Friday, Sept. 25, 2020, during Homecoming Weekend. I hope you can all still join us that evening. The Office of Alumni Affairs will honor reservations for sponsors or current ticket holders for the new date. If you need to cancel for any reason, we will be happy to provide you a refund of your ticket purchase; please call our office at 313-578-0327 to make arrangements.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I hope you understand the circumstances. More information on the University’s response to the virus is available at https://www.udmercy.edu/life/health/health-advisory.php.
Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions!
