The High Road Runs Through the City is an annual program with common features every year:

  • Creative individual project work
  • Group experience of urban immersion in arts, culture, history, neighborhoods, politics and economy of a great rust belt city
  • Skill building, teamwork and leadership development
  • Application of academic learning to practical reality

Every year is also unique as the High Road is a journey through current events, new development projects, evolving challenges, and everyday innovation and change.
