the Project study
The Dow Chemical Company (Dow), the University of Michigan (UM), and Delta College (Delta) have collaborated to develop an interdisciplinary innovation and education hub with the Delta Midland Center. Together, they look to inspire the workforce of tomorrow and create sustainable pathways that will have a positive impact on the environment and society.
This education hub accelerates Dow’s and Delta’s focus on building a workforce of tomorrow that creates sustainable solutions in the Great Lakes Bay Region through the promotion of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education.
The facility includes 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, located on the first floor. Part of the Innovation Institute, Dow and UM have created Dow Innovation Fellows, a program designed to develop robust, applicable, and educational experiences for Midland area teachers and high school students. The Innovation Institute provides them with an immersive learning environment of focused programming in the areas of advanced, cutting edge manufacturing techniques, sustainable innovation, and global citizenship.
