Dean Kuleck in Chicago

July 15, 2015

College of Engineering & Science alumni Mike Faron ’72 and classmate Bob Hamilton ’72 helped welcome a handful of alumni in Chicago on June 23. 

Invited speaker, Dean Gary Kuleck, highlighted several key initiatives happening in the College, including a transformative five-year grant from the National Institutes of Health to University of Detroit Mercy and three other Detroit schools.  The $21.2 million grant seeks to implement a program encouraging more undergraduate students from underrepresented and economically disadvantaged backgrounds to pursue careers in biomedical research. 

The grant known as “ReBUILDetroit” is one of ten programs nationally and the only one in the Midwest.  “Our program is quite unique in that all the higher education institutions within Detroit are involved.” Kuleck said.  “Our goal is aggressive but simple.  We want Detroit to be a center for biomedical graduates and research.”

Kuleck also spoke about the renaissance taking place within the College of Engineering & Science.   “Construction will begin shortly on two new laboratories that will provide hands-on experience to real-world applications,” said Kuleck.  Further, he provided details on enrollment and retention goals, faculty and student achievements, as well as key University news items.

“We are excited for our future and hope that you will continue to support and sustain our programs into the future.”
