About

Our mission

As a nationally recognized urban public research university, Wayne State's mission is to create knowledge and prepare a diverse body of students to excel in an increasingly complex and global society.

Our vision

Wayne State University’s vision is to become the model public research university engaged in the urban community.

Our goals

Five specific goals result from Wayne State’s strategic vision for the university. These goals articulate its aspirations and provide a framework for the way in which its new plan will be translated into action.

Wayne State University has pledged to:

  • Promote an exceptional learning experience.
  • Improve the university’s stature as a nationally-ranked research institution.
  • Nurture a strong and dynamic campus community.
  • Sustain our role as an engaged university in an urban environment.
  • Diversify and broaden the university’s funding base.
  • Wayne State intends to remain one of the nation’s most respected public research universities, and feels that these goals provide a way to make that happen. National recognition is not an end in itself; what matters most is how Wayne State’s progress as shaped by these goals will position the university to benefit its students and, ultimately, its city, state, nation and the world.

Wayne State is a nationally recognized urban center of excellence in research and one of only 10 U.S. public universities in major cities holding the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s designation as an institution with “very high research activity,” as well as the foundation’s most comprehensive classification for community engagement. WSU is among the nation’s top public universities for total research expenditures ($245.8 million) according to the National Science Foundation.

Research, scholarship and creative activity are the foundation of our achievements, offering students a university experience that prepares them for leadership roles as scientists, health professionals, artists, educators, entrepreneurs and more. Through groundbreaking research and hands-on education, Wayne State faculty members transform the lives of our students and the citizens of our community.

Student Life

WSU has a vibrant campus life on and around campus. Located in the heart of mid-town Detroit, there is always something to do if you know where to look. Students enjoy making trips to unique restaurants, art galleries, shops, and cafes to hang out and relax. Within walking distance you can attend a Broadway play, watch a professional sporting event, listen to the sounds of a symphony orchestra and much more.

On Campus

Show your pride and enthusiasm by getting involved. WSU has more than 250 student organizations for students to join including sororities, fraternities, academic and professional organizations, cultural groups, service and social action organizations, religious, and entertainment groups. Attend Student Organization Day in Fall or Winter Semesters to meet group members and get involved or visit the Dean of Students Office Web page to learn more.

In addition to student organizations and their events, our Student Activities Program Board coordinates events throughout the year for students such as comedy shows and outdoor movies, and many of our campus offices also plan events for students. The WSU Events Calendar is your complete source for campus events. In addition, our residence hall and apartment lobbies will have new digital signage this fall where you can learn about campus events so you'll never be left "out of the loop."

Accreditation
