Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the Wayne State University Graduate School.  As Interim Dean of the Graduate School, I am honored to join its diverse community of distinguished students, scholars, and staff who share my commitment to the advancement of academic excellence in graduate and postdoctoral education.  

We attract promising scholars and provide them with a rich environment that nurtures important research, scholarship and creative endeavors in support of their journey to become leaders, visionaries, and innovators across all sectors of society.

I am delighted to welcome you to our website, and as you explore it, you will find our commitment to excellence reflected in a range of initiatives and services that have been thoughtfully integrated to support the success of a diverse body of master's and doctoral students, postdoctoral scholars, and graduate faculty members across Wayne State. 

After familiarizing yourself with the full range of initiatives, programs, and opportunities we offer, I trust that you will find our distinguished Graduate School fully embodies Wayne State's vision of being 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.
