FIND YOURSELF IN DETROIT.
Seamless. That’s the word our students use to describe how our 200-acre campus fits into the landscape of one of the most vibrant cities in the United States. Wayne State has always been open and accessible to Detroit — and vice versa.
Students and faculty come here to learn, work, play and live for the same reason they come to Detroit: because here is where you get to experience what the world is really like.
And you can take advantage of Wayne State’s connections with the worlds of health care, manufacturing, business, law, entertainment and more. Opportunities are available to you, thanks to your connection with us.
IN GOOD TASTE.
The food scene in this city has been one of the most concentrated eruptions of tasty excitement to ever hit a metropolis.
Don’t believe us?
Maybe you’ll believe National Geographic, Zagat, Lonely Planet or Travel + Leisure, who have all reported wildly popular reviews about dining in the D.
From acclaimed restaurants and breweries to independently owned bakeries and coffee shops, Detroit has become a culinary destination for foodies everywhere.
There are hundreds of restaurants, with flavors from every corner of the globe, for any dining experience — and any budget.
TRAVEL INTERNATIONALLY. IN ABOUT 10 MINUTES.
Wayne State’s campus is a 200-acre oasis of green spaces, walking paths, classic architecture, new buildings, fountains and reflective pools.
And, just a step outside of our campus is Detroit: one of the most exciting comeback cities in the nation. A city with an international riverfront that looks onto our sister city, Windsor, Canada.
A campus, a neighborhood, a metropolis and a foreign land — all in a five-mile radius.
What more could you ask for?
It’s right here.
LEADING THE WAY.
Wayne State University is a recognized research leader in Michigan, in the United States and around the world.
Last year, our research funding totaled more than $259 million, while we continued to hold the highest Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching designations in both research and community engagement.
Our forward thinking continues to pay off: Over a decade ago, Wayne State University, Michigan State University and the University of Michigan partnered to create the University Research Corridor (URC), one of the nation’s top academic research clusters.
In 2017, the URC generated $2.5 billion in research and development and made up 94% of the research conducted in Michigan. We’re leading the way, with great work for a brighter future, done right here.
THE HUMAN TOUCH.
Knowledge is a gift that must be shared, passed on to create culture, shape society and further understanding. That belief fuels students and faculty in each of our schools and colleges, who commit to taking what they learn here into the world.
You can see that commitment at work in our College of Education, where students are not satisfied with being tomorrow’s teachers — they want to start today. The college’s TeachDETROIT residency program gives them that chance, placing future Wayne State grads in local schools for training, mentoring, and working closely with families and students who benefit from their knowledge.
Warriors are more than just students — they make up the fabric of this city. Your family physician and the author whose words helped you understand the world may have started in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Our College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts likely helped shape the reporter who informs your community, the dancer whose grace moved you and the TV star who made you laugh.
Knowledge cannot be contained. It’s infectious. It leaves our campus and transforms the world — and that transformation starts in Detroit.
