Urban Learning and Leadership Collaborative (ULLC): Focus Hope

MSU is one of the three research university partners (along with Wayne State University and the University of Michigan) involved in the development of the Urban Learning and Leadership Collaborative. The vision of the collaborative is to be the collaborative platform for the HOPE Village Initiative, where local knowledge and university resources mesh to create innovative solutions to community challenges. MSU continues to support this effort through staff participation on the core team and is in the infrastructure development and funding phase of the project.
