Wayne State University has a long history of addressing issues that affect people who live and work beyond our campus boundaries. This is about being a university that combines learning with the application of knowledge to improve lives, both within our community and beyond.

More than community service, the university's engagement activities and research support a crucial piece of our urban mission. They address core issues that disproportionately affect urban centers, with a goal to translate new discoveries to improve our community.

Investing in these initiatives enables Wayne State to advance projects and programs that help meet the needs of our neighbors, while providing applied learning experiences that prepare our students for successful and rewarding lives.

Your gift will help Wayne State develop community-minded students while positioning Detroit as a model for urban centers around the world.
