A community of Warriors
Warriors come from everywhere, from rural communities to bustling cities. They serve in the military; worship in churches, mosques, and synagogues; and speak in hundreds of languages. Some come to Wayne State University from families with a long history of college grads; others are the first in their family to pursue higher education. Many live just blocks from our campus; others crossed oceans to study here.
At Wayne State University, we strive to make campus an inclusive environment for everyone. We welcome all people and understand that their unique experiences, talents, and perspectives make us a stronger community and better individuals. The University has a long history of meaningful engagement with society, and diversity and inclusion are core values in both our mission and our strategic plan.
Wayne State is remarkable for many things, but our ability to open doors to people of all backgrounds, races, creeds, and walks of life is our proudest legacy. And our unwavering commitment to diversity, inclusion, and social justice continues to be our North Star.
The Office of Multicultural Student Engagement (OMSE) seeks to cultivate a safe campus environment where we value, promote, and celebrate identities among all students who engage with the Office while intentionally offering initiatives that positively address and impact retention and graduation rates of students who arrive at WSU underrepresented and at risk.
The Wayne State University Warrior Vision and Impact Program (VIP) is a comprehensive student support program that helps students get acclimated to WSU and what it means to be a successful college student. In partnership with other programs and departments across WSU, the Warrior VIP ensures students have a successful transition to college, foster positive engagement in the University setting, and are prepared to challenge themselves as leaders beyond graduation.
