Buzz Builds about U-M Ross Back-to-School Fair in Eastern Market


“[This is an opportunity] not only for the new MBA students to participate in the transformation that is public education in Detroit, but to introduce them to Detroit as a place to live, work and engage,”

Steven Wasko, Detroit Public Schools Spokesman

This year’s incoming class of MBAs will experience first-hand the transformative power of Ross’ commitment to action-based learning during the RLI Impact Challenge. During the challenge, students will be asked to host a back-to-school fair in partnership with Detroit Public Schools and the Detroit Parent Network.

The details of the challenge are still top secret, but that hasn’t stopped the buzz. Detroit Public Schools were tweeting about it during a press event yesterday, and The Detroit News had a rundown of the event as well. Check them out and get ready for an exciting start to fall!
