Community and University Partners

The Detroit Initiative aims to identify and work with a variety of community partners. This provides students with a thorough introduction to the types of community based organizations existing within the city of Detroit.

As service provision becomes increasingly “community-based,” many types of community groups provide services to the surrounding community and its constituents. These include:

  • Grassroots Community Based Agencies
  • Faith Based Organizations
  • Schools
  • Human Service Organizations

Students gain direct experience working within these types of organizations through participation in the Detroit Initiative. For more information about our partners, click on the links below:

Below is an interactive map of the Detroit based organizations we partner with at the Detroit Initiative. We will update any locations/services as each new semester begins.
