“MDP was the first experience that really made me feel like I belonged to the University of Michigan community. My MDP faculty advisor really interacted with me to see me grow in skills that would be valuable after I graduated. He provided me opportunities that allowed me to gain some critical skills as an undergraduate student and as an individual.” 

Edward plans to graduate in December of 2020.
