Detroit Auto Scene
The recent forum at Wayne State University featuring three Nobel Peace Prize laureates is covered in this feature story. An audience of about 650 gathered during this public forum that is part of the 20th anniversary of the Wayne State University Honors Program, which is defined by the program’s four pillars – community, service, research and career. Undergraduates focus on one of the four pillars during each year of study at WSU. The symposium was sponsored by the DaimlerChrysler Corp. Fund, which is the primary source of charitable grants made by the corporation. The distinguished speakers were introduced by Michigan Supreme Court Justice Maura Corrigan. Corrigan also joined a panel at the event with U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich. A photo of Levin, Corrigan and the three laureates is included.
