Detroit Institute of Gastronomy is a student-centered Institute both in its philosophy and its operation.

Mission Statement

We are committed to providing quality education crafted to build students with well-informed minds, skillful hands, feet that willingly carry responsibility, heads held high in confidence, hearts for hospitality, and the spirit to serve others. 


Data collection, reported through the Institutional Effectiveness Report (IER) combined with input from internal and external stakeholders is the driving force behind the creation of the Strategic Plan. Through the systematic process of defining pillars and developing key indicators, DIG closely monitors performance metrics on a monthly, quarterly, and annual schedule.

Action Planning

Establishing action plans developed from the goals outlined in the strategic plan, and designed to meet the mission statement of DIG, the operational team implements continuous improvement in the educational delivery, offerings and overall institutional operations. Student success aligned with the Institutional Student Learning Outcomes (ISLO) is the primary motivation for improvement.
