About This Meeting

University Research Corridor Presidents Dr. Mark Schlissel (University of Michigan), Dr. Lou Anna Simon (Michigan State University) and Dr. Roy Wilson (Wayne State University) addressed the Detroit Economic Club Tuesday June 7th and discussed how the URC is engaged in the Motor City.

“We contribute a lot to Detroit in making it a better city, whether that is through economic revitalization, community building, improving health, or even the arts,” said Wilson. “We do a lot to improve Detroit and we thought that it would be good to see what the collective contributions are from our three universities, what the commitment is to Detroit so that we can really be involved in a collective way with making it a better city.”
