In a Thursday morning
press conference, the league
announced the Winter Classic at
the'Big House and the inaugural
Hockeytown Winter Festival,
which will be held at Comerica
Park, the home of the Detroit
Tigers.
"The NHL in the Big House
- it doesn't get any bigger than
that," said Christopher Illitch,
son of Tigers and Red Wings
owner Mike Illitch.

approved a proposal to lease
Michigan Stadium to the NHL

ACADEMIC PROGRAMS
Nursing School,
Peace Corps start
joint grad program

New master's
degree to be offered
this fall
By K.C.WASSMAN
Daily Staff Reporter
After serving as the site
where then Senator John F.
Kennedy announced his inten-
tions to create the Peace Corps
more than Soyears ago,the Uni-
versity is yet again proving to be
a leader in international service
as it will partner with the Peace
Corps to develop a new collab-
orative nursing master's degree
program.
The program, Peace Corps's
Master's International, will be
incorporated into the School
of Nursing's new International
Health concentration this fall
and will include 27 months of
service overseas, ultimately
becoming the first Peace Corps
nursing program in the country.
The University collaborated
with the Peace Corps in 2010
to create Master's Internation-
al programs in the Schools of
Social Work, Natural Resources
and Environment and Educa-
tion. The new nursing program
was added to this partnership
through an addendum signed
last December, according to a

Universitypress release.
Interested students are
required to apply to both the
Peace Corps and the Nursing
master's program, the release
stated. Accepted students will
serve as health extension volun-
teers around the world as a part
of Master's International.
Leslie Dorman Davis, pro-
gram director of the Office of
Global Outreach at the School
of Nursing, said she believes
the program will largely benefit
students, allowing them to fur-
ther their academic goals while
gaining valuable life experienc-
es through assisting others.
"(The program) enables the
students to graduate in four
years withnot only the Michi-
gan master's in nursing, but also
with two years of very solid,
hands-on, practical, formal
experience," Davis said.
Bill Nolting, assistant direc-
tor for Education Abroad at the
University's International Cen-
ter, said the program showcases
the growth of the Peace Corps
at the University.
"(The relationship) is clearly
growing," Nolting said. "I think
that one reason why nursing
and the Peace Corps itself are
interested in establishing a Mas-
ters International program is
the strength of our Peace Corps
