Focus on Detroit 2015
At MSU Extension, we believe that the best way to help people is to teach them to help themselves. For more than 100 years, our staff members have helped grow Michigan’s economy by equipping Michigan residents with the information that they need to do their jobs better, raise healthy and safe families, build their communities and empower their children to dream of a successful future.
And we’ve been working in Detroit since the beginning. Our strength comes from working in the neighborhoods with the people of Detroit. Our staff members share Detroiters’ passion for reinvigorating the neighborhoods because they are Detroiters themselves.
Michigan State University Extension has a robust presence in Wayne County with six offices in the county, five of which are in Detroit. Thirty Extension professionals serve the county with diverse programming that includes youth development, community and economic development, financial literacy, nutrition, and agriculture and natural resources education.
