Being a good corporate citizen is a priority and we constantly strive to strengthen the communities we live and work in.
Through educational and technological initiatives we have worked to bolster student success and community involvement.
DCT, and its subsidiaries are heavily involved in the Detroit community on several projects, especially those that involve children. Among the most important are:
The Math Corps – DCTI is a corporate sponsor for and actively involved with the Wayne State University Math Corps Program. Math Corps is a tuition-free academic enrichment and mentoring program that brings middle and high school students together, with college students and mathematicians to share in the teaching and learning of mathematics in a university setting. It is based on the idea of creating a self-perpetuating “corps," where students matriculate through the program and return as mentors and tutors, passing their knowledge and values on to younger students, who in turn do the same.
Internships – We have both high school and college students interning at our subsidiaries. Some work in the laboratories with our chemists while others work on business projects with our management team. Recently, our interns worked on research funded by the United Soybean Board to develop soy-based alternatives.
We also support organizations through monetary sponsorships and contributions. Some of these organizations include:
The Detroit Science Center (Renovation Project)
The Board of Education/WSU Math Corps
Boy Scouts of America
The Detroit Institute of Arts
Big Brothers Big Sisters
