Stop-Motion: UDM Mission

Students are encouraged to take ownership of the UDM Mission and the city in which the university resides with the thought that UDM and Detroit are parts of a larger whole. “Research can be local in focus, as many of UDM’s research projects are, but it is always global in nature, depending as it does on critical review by scholars in world wide disciplinary communities.” Students are asked to consider what are some ways we can expand on the mission website’s definition through using DMS projects and readings? How can a student incorporate the mission in his/her life?
