Daniel Howes' Weekend Essay

Detroit News Columnist Daniel Howes and Michigan Radio are partners in weekly essays examining what's hot in Michigan business and politics – and what it all means. This week, Howes explains how the Kresge Foundation and the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary are collaborating to rescue Marygrove College from financial collapse. The goal: to transform the 91-year-old school, opened by the sisters in the heart of Detroit, into a model of urban education and community redevelopment.
