"When the bus wheels stopped spinning, it didn’t take long for other wheels to start spinning in the minds of 28 U-M faculty and staff members who experienced the Michigan Road Scholars tour from May 6-10.
The tour connected the Road Scholars with people in communities throughout the state — from residential builders in Detroit to civic leaders in St. Ignace. In between they met with K-12 educators, judges, tribal health providers, and businesses large and small in Lansing, Grand Rapids, East Jordan and Traverse City.
The week gave them a better sense of the needs and concerns of people throughout Michigan, more knowledge of the places their students call home, and ideas for future collaborations" (Kosdrosky, Terry. "New ideas, new views of Michigan after Road Scholars tour." The University Record. 13 May 2019. 13 May 2019).
