University of Detroit Mercy has acquired a new 40,000-square-foot facility in Novi that allows the institution to expand graduate and health education programs, and provides space for future offerings.
This new campus comes at an important time for the University and the community as demand for healthcare graduates grows. With the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on business, industry and education, Detroit Mercy’s newest location will provide access to the institution’s nationally ranked programs for students who wish to stay close to home and their employer.
The campus is located in Novi at the intersection of 12 Mile and Meadowbrook Roads. According to University officials , Detroit Mercy will be able to expand its current graduate and health education programs while providing space for new educational offerings in healthcare and related fields.
Detroit Mercy is also in discussion with healthcare partners regarding prospective new graduate programs consistent with Detroit Mercy’s history of providing care and services in metropolitan Detroit. The University also expects to offer professional development programs, including continuing dental education, at the new campus.
University President Antoine M. Garibaldi believes this new campus offers another example of the institution’s bright future as the state and country continue to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Detroit Mercy’s acquisition of this new campus will allow the university to expand academic programs in the health professions and other fields in which we are strong and that are in demand,” he said. “In addition to this campus’s proximity to several medical centers, Detroit Mercy will now be able to expand its 14 decades-long and Detroit-based Jesuit and Mercy education to a larger population in the metropolitan area while simultaneously building on our three campuses in the city of Detroit.”
