Malcolm Carron, S.J. served at what is now the University of Detroit Mercy for more than 23 years. During his tenure, he wore a variety of hats as a Jesuit priest, teacher, administrator, civil rights leader and as the school's President for 13 years.
Following his tenure at the University, he helped raise enrollment and funds for University of Detroit Jesuit High School as president for 11 years and was instrumental in opening Loyola High School in Detroit in 1993 as their first president.
An exceptionally modest man, Father Carron worked hard to break down the barriers that separated people on the basis of faith and cultural heritage and worked tirelessly to keep the university ecumenical as well as urban.
Father Carron contributed a great deal to the community outside the academic realm. A founding member of New Detroit, Inc. and the Michigan Biotechnology Institute, he has served on more than 50 civic committees and boards, including Boys Hope of Detroit, Vista Maria, and the United Way for Southeastern Michigan, the Economic Club of Detroit and the Race Relations Council of Detroit.
For the past few years, Fr Carron has been living at the Jesuits' Colombiere Center in Clarkston, Michigan. He passed away on April 19, 2005 at the age of 87. He will be greatly missed.
