Wayne State University
Wayne State University’s story begins in 1868 with the founding of the Detroit Medical College, now the School of Medicine. Since 1915, it has been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, one of six regional accrediting agencies in the United States that provides accreditation to colleges and universities at the institutional level. The mission of the university is to be a pre-eminent, public, urban research university known for academic and research excellence, success across a diverse student body, and meaningful engagement in its urban community.
Wayne State University has much to offer, a broad choice of degree programs, dedicated faculty and staff, exceptional opportunities for research and international experiences, access to the latest informational and learning technology, intramural and intercollegiate sports, and a vibrant campus life. It offers an immersive educational experience where students work alongside people from different countries, cultures and socio economic backgrounds in a microcosm of their interconnected world.
The University is committed to the safety and security of its campus community. A wide range of activities, training, safety measures, technology and resources combine to ensure Wayne State remains one of Michigan’s safest college campuses, a place where everyone can live, learn, work, and experience all that Detroit has to offer without worry.
