What is Urban Studio?

In collaboration with the College of Arts and Letters’ Citizen Scholar Program, the Urban Studio allows students studying subjects such as arts management, experience architecture, graphic design, and professional writing to hone the skills they acquire in their majors through engagement with real life work happening around Michigan. Our current focus is in one of the most interesting urban settings in the world right now: Detroit.

Urban Studio pairs the talent, energy, and expertise of MSU students and faculty with the drive, experience, and commitment of Michigan citizens, organizations and entrepreneurs to support development and effect long-term community change.

In doing so, participants are expected to connect, engage, and immerse in and with the City of Detroit.
