THE World ranking

Wayne State has been an innovative urban center of higher learning since 1868, when a group of Civil War doctors envisioned a better world through better medicine. Since its founding as the Detroit Medical College, it has grown to become one of the 50 largest public universities in the United States, offering nearly 350 degree and certificate programs through 13 schools and colleges.

From medicine and mechanical engineering to graphic design and geology, the university?s faculty members are renowned for innovation and expertise in their fields, crafting hands-on curricula to take students out of the classroom and into the real world. They are increasingly known for their interdisciplinary research in areas such as health sciences and disparities, the environment, entrepreneurship and data analytics, human services and education, manufacturing, language and the arts. Whether in the lab or on the stage, they are making a measurable impact in their neighborhood and around the world.

There are over 400 recognized student organizations including such diverse categories as academic/professional, social action, political, sororities/fraternities, honoraries, ethnic and religious groups, as well as student governments. Student organizations use the Dean of Students Office to process their event planning and all students use the Dean of Students Office to learn about getting involved in campus life.

The Campus Health Center provides comprehensive health care services for students, including physical examinations, family planning, illness visits, and immunizations (including flu, meningitis, hepatitis B, etc.). Visits are by appointment, but walk-ins are accepted for students experiencing an illness. Counseling referral services are also available.

The University offers a wide and varied program of recreational and intramural activities. The Matthaei Complex, and the surrounding athletic campus on forty-three acres of land, located on the west end of campus, offers a myriad of drop-in activity areas that include courts and fields for basketball, football, jogging, racquetball, soccer, squash, tennis, and volleyball, a weight training/exercise room, and swimming facilities.

There's no place on earth like Detroit. And there's no campus on earth like Wayne State. The university is in Midtown, the city center and one of the country's fastest growing neighborhoods. On campus, students will find 200 acres of green space, walking paths and state-of-the-art facilities surrounded by renowned cultural institutions and industry-leading employers. Every day, Wayne State students and faculty participate in the reinvention of a great American city as they live, learn, work and play in the heart of Detroit.
