University of Detroit Mercy adding Novi campus to expand graduate and health education programs | News

The University of Detroit Mercy will be adding a 40,000 square foot campus in Novi to offer additional graduate level and health education programs amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The university has acquired the former South University building, located at 41555 W. 12 Mile Road, as community demand for health care graduates increases during the pandemic. The new location will provide access to the institution’s nationally ranked programs for students who wish to stay close to home and their employer.

President Antoine M. Garibaldi said the new campus offers another example of the institution’s bright future as the state and country continue to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.

UB Graduate School of Education waives GRE requirement for non-licensure programs

BUFFALO, N.Y. – The University at Buffalo Graduate School of Education will not require applicants to submit Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) scores for admission to academic programs that do not require professional licensure for the next two years.

By waiving the requirement, the school will remove a barrier to admission that disproportionately affects talented students facing financial hardships and applicants from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds. GRE tests are expensive – costing students hundreds of dollars. Time-consuming and costly test preparation services and materials add to the financial burden.

“There is plenty of research that suggests the GRE is not necessarily a good predictor of academic success. At a time where access to the test is even more challenging, due to COVID-19, and at a time when GSE has gone on the record as trying to actively challenge systems of oppressions, removing this barrier just makes good sense,” says Suzanne Rosenblith, PhD,
