The event will include an informational presentation, and faculty, students, alumni and community partners will be available to share experiences and answer questions.

The Master of Community Development is a unique program that takes a holistic approach to the theory and practice of community development with a foundation rooted in service, social justice and sustainability. The program uses the HOPE Model, which integrates human, organizational, physical and economic aspects of community development for a comprehensive approach to the renewal of communities.

The MCD is a unique program not found anywhere else in the United States. While other degree programs focus on one aspect of community development, Detroit Mercy’s program emphasizes a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach. Students have collaborated with more than 100 local organizations in support of class assignments, capstone projects, research, internships and fellowships.

The MCD program includes faculty from a number of different academic departments as well as professionals in community development to provide a broad, interdisciplinary foundation. The result is a program that combines theory with practical application.
