Welcome from the President
I am delighted to welcome you to Wayne State University, which has offered students a quality educational experience for more than 140 years. From quiet beginnings we have become a nationally recognized research university with urban roots and a global reputation.
Ours is a rich and diverse learning community, with students from across Michigan, 50 states, and more than 65 countries around the world. We believe a university is a place where highly motivated people of differing backgrounds and aspirations may pursue both knowledge and personal growth in a stimulating environment.
Whatever your interests, goals, and ambitions, Wayne State University has much to offer — a broad choice of degree programs, a dedicated faculty and staff, exceptional opportunities for research, international experiences, access to the latest informational and learning technology, intramural and intercollegiate sports, and a vibrant campus life.
I invite you to visit us here on one of the nation’s most beautiful urban campuses. Come discover what makes Wayne State University such a very special place.
