DEARBORN, Mich. — Lake Superior State University will open a satellite campus this fall on the site of a public school academy that it charters in Dearborn, according to Crain's Detroit Business.

The Sault Ste. Marie-based university will lease space from Advanced Technology Academy for the new Dearborn University Consortium Center, Crain's reported. The university has developed an articulation agreement with Henry Ford Community College so that Henry Ford students can complete their bachelor's degrees at the new site, the report said.

The university will offer bachelor's completion programs in business and criminal justice this fall, and then plans to add applied geographic information systems, computer networking and Web development, the report said.

This is LSSU's first southeast Michigan satellite campus. It hopes to enroll 75 to 100 students this fall, according to Crain's.
