Getting Schooled … Auburn Hills Style

Posted by – Steve Cohen, Director of Community Development

The Community Development Department had the fun opportunity yesterday to spend the day with the 7th class of Auburn Hills University (AHU).

What is AHU?  Every year a small group of employees meet one day a month, for six months, to learn what each City Department does.  By getting together in this way, we build our team by discussing what we all do in an informal setting.

As you can see in the photos below, the class was able to tour the Palace of Auburn Hills and received a sneak preview of the new GKN Headquarters building under construction at the former Showcase Cinema site on Opdyke Road.

We had a good time, learned a lot, and really enjoyed getting to know each other better.
