The consortium of University of Detroit Mercy, Wayne State University and pipeline partner Henry Ford College, form the ReBUILDetroit Project. The mission to equip underrepresented undergraduate students with the necessary education, confidence and exposure to research has been led during the past several years by these key individuals.
