The Dow Chemical Company (Dow), the University of Michigan (UM), and Delta College (Delta) collaborated to develop an interdisciplinary innovation and education hub, dubbed the Delta Midland Center, to inspire the workforce of tomorrow and create sustainable pathways that will have a positive impact on the environment and society.
This education hub will accelerate Dow’s and Delta’s focus on building the workforce of tomorrow and innovating for sustainable solutions in the Great Lakes Bay Region through the promotion of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.
The facility will include science and computer labs, classrooms, advanced educational and training technology, special use training rooms, multi-purpose rooms and labs, student services, and administrative space.
Additionally, Dow and UM announced the inception of the Andrew N. Liveris Innovation Institute, to be located on the first floor. Part of the Innovation Institute, Dow and UM will create Dow Innovation Fellows, a program designed to develop robust, applicable, and educational experiences for Midland area teachers and high school students. The Innovation Institute will provide them with an immersive learning environment of focused programming in the areas of advanced, cutting edge manufacturing techniques, sustainable innovation, and global citizenship.
