Podcast: Tom Sugrue on the Story of Detroit

In this episode of Social Impact Design for Business, Jerry Davis of Michigan Ross’ +Impact Studio interviews Tom Sugrue, Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis and History at NYU, and author of “Origins of the Urban Crisis: Race and Inequality in Postwar Detroit.”  In this episode, Tom dispels the myth that Detroit’s economic hardship and racial tensions began with the 1967 uprising and instead identifies factors at play since the 1920s, and looks ahead to a brighter future for Detroit.

A Summer of Impact: Insights from Impact Studio & B+I Summer Interns

In the summer of 2021, Business+Impact supported 55 student interns with multiple regional and global organizations and within our +Impact Studio. In the +Impact Studio  nearly 30 students used design and business to make an impact. Read about the lessons learned developing and prototyping impactful ventures in the Applebaum Impact Design Fellowship and Founders Program, and read about the first +Impact Studio Summer Demo Day. Right here in Detroit, students in the +Impact Studio for Local Business developed consulting products that made a big impact for Detroit’s small business owners. Additionally, learn about how Michigan Ross students are putting design tools to use such as Adobe XD to use as part of the UM Adobe Creative Campus.

Students from Ross and Ford created impact through virtual or onsite internships, where they developed skills in business and policy that expanded their horizons exponentially and created value for numerous impact organizations. Read these snapshots of student experiences from this summer and see photos from their experiences.

Aspen Institute Checks in with the +Impact Studio

June 2, 2021 – Aspen Institute featured the Michigan Ross +Impact Studio in a blog post titled “Breaking Boundaries to Build Back Better”:

June 2021 marks half a year since the end of 2020, a year punctuated by the COVID-19 pandemic, economic turmoil and an epidemic of racial injustice. In that year of crisis, a phrase emerged capturing many hopes for recovery: “build back better.” With 2020—thankfully—receding into the past, what progress is being made to build back better?

It’s a question Jeffrey Sanchez-Burks has thought about extensively. The University of Michigan Ross School of Business Professor was recognized by the Aspen Institute Business & Society Program with an Ideas Worth Teaching Award for his course, +Impact Studio: Translating Research into Practice. The theme of the course in fall of 2020? Build back better. We spoke with Sanchez-Burks about his course, and how his vision for building back better calls for breaking disciplinary boundaries within academia, and between academia and the broader world.
