Being a good corporate citizen is a priority and we constantly strive to strengthen the communities in which we live and work.
Through educational and technological initiatives, we have worked to bolster student success and community involvement.
Diversified Chemical Technologies, Inc., and its subsidiaries are heavily involved in the Detroit community on several projects, especially those that involve children. Among the most important are:
Diversified Chemical Technologies, Inc. is a corporate sponsor for and is 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.
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:
GLEANERS - FEEDING PEOPLE, NOURISHING LIVES
DRMM - DETROIT RESCUE MISSION MINISTERIES
LEADERS UP - THE FUTURE AT WORK
DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARS - A PROGRAM OF SCHOLARSHIP OF AMERICA
MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY - COMMUNITY MUSIC SCHOOL FROM THE COLLEGE OF MUSIC
