A decade-long partnership between the Ford School of Public Policy and the David Bohnett Foundation has provided 33 master’s students with opportunities for public service learning in Detroit. In October, 20 current and past fellows gathered at a reception in Ann Arbor to celebrate this milestone, and the accomplishments of the David Bohnett Foundation Leadership & Public Service Fellows.
Ford School Dean Michael Barr acknowledged the amazing opportunities the fellowship provides to students. “I am deeply grateful for David Bohnett, who brought his vision for the fellowship to the Ford School. This is an extraordinary gift.”
Speaking directly to the fellows, he added, “You all are an exemplary part of our Ford School community. Even in this challenging year, our community has thrived because of our focus on making people’s lives better.“
“As a funder, I can just look at the names of our alumni and where they are now to know how successful this program is,” said Michael Fleming, executive director of the David Bohnett Foundation.
