Career opportunities

The Division of Development and Alumni Affairs at Wayne State University is set to begin a new course in fundraising, engagement and impact. Building on the success of Pivotal Moments, our most recent $750 million campaign, which concluded in 2018 having secured over $776 million, we are expanding our division to meet the challenge of our next campaign. It is an exciting time to join Wayne State as a development and alumni professional.

As Michigan's only public urban research university, Wayne State has been dedicated to changing the world from the heart of Detroit for more than 150 years. When you join Wayne State, you will be part of a collaborative community with a goal to make lasting impact in one of America's most unique and original cities. Our classification in Carnegie's highest research category is matched by the highest classification for community engagement, a testament to our desire and ability to positively impact Detroit, our state and beyond. 

Wayne State also is fully committed to achieving the goal of a diverse and inclusive community of faculty, staff and students. We seek individuals who are committed to this goal and our core campus values of respect, responsibility, discovery and excellence. Diversity isn't a slogan at Wayne State; it's a reality that's woven into our mission and guides everything we do.

Inspired by Wayne State's new, five-year strategic plan entitled "Our Moment in Time," our next comprehensive campaign represents real world opportunities to advance student success, research, community engagement in Detroit, and more. The university's extensive benefits package and flexible work environment only adds to an enriching career.

We are Wayne State University. This is our moment.
