    The Community Scholars program engages on-campus students with a specialized interest in community change work.

On-Campus students are welcome to express an interest in both tracks; however, it is only possible to be accepted into one track.

    As one of our Community Scholars Programs, the purpose of the Community-Based Initiative (CBI) in Detroit is to train and support a new generation of social workers dedicated to community and social change in urban cities, neighborhoods, and communities. This is done through on-campus coursework and field placements based in Detroit and surrounding areas including Highland Park, Hamtramck, and Dearborn. Upon graduation, CBI scholars work as community organizers, policymakers, program planners, organization managers and administrators, evaluators, and foundation staff within Michigan, the US, and internationally. Incoming students who are genuinely committed to community-based work in urban areas will be selected for the CBI program.
