The university delivers student-centered undergraduate and graduate education in an urban context. For this grant, the university serves as a fiscal sponsor for the Live6 Alliance. This grant will support the launch of the On the Ground Project, a 90-day neighborhood reporting program and media hub that aims to create intensive regular coverage and storytelling about the McNichols and Livernois corridors – also known as the Live6 district – in Northwest Detroit. The project is a collaboration between the Live6 Alliance and Model D Media.
