CWTP | InnovateGov: Cultivating the Next Generation of Community Leaders

Event Description

The tension in Detroit between new opportunities and the day-to-day experiences of hundreds of thousands of city residents presents an immense challenge to the city’s civic leadership. MSU’s InnovateGov – a Detroit emersion program that has embedded nearly 100 talented and motivated MSU students within 30 distinct civic organizations – was launched in response to these challenges. This presentation will address the history and impact of this program, and consider broader questions about the delivery of high-quality education for civic engagement.
