Data and reports
In pursuit of an equitable and inclusive campus, Wayne State University has generated dashboards and reports to demonstrate our past, current, and future DEI efforts. The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion has highlighted these resources here for transparency and access.
Social Justice Action Committee Report
The Social Justice Action Committee (SJAC) was launched by President M. Roy Wilson in 2020 with a charge to examine WSU policies and practices that disproportionately disadvantage historically marginalized peoples and make recommendations for interventions. The full report, released March 2021, is public.
A welcoming and inclusive campus climate is grounded in mutual respect, nurtured by dialogue, evidenced by a pattern of civil interaction, and is one of the foundations of our educational model. In 2018 a Campus Climate Study was completed. The full report is accessible for the Wayne State Community.
The Office of Institutional Research and Data Analytics publishes interactive dashboards. These dashboards are helpful resources when considering the diversity of our students, faculty, and staff.
Wayne State University has been named a member of the Age-Friendly University Global Network, an innovative consortium of universities dedicated to promoting equity, inclusion, and opportunity for older adults. A strategic focus of the university is diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Greater Retention and Achievement through Diversity
The GRAD (Greater Retention and Achievement through Diversity) report was produced in 2013. This report highlighted achievement gaps, and it catapulted WSU's student success efforts of the last decade. Key recommendations of the GRAD committee including hiring a Chief Diversity Officer and creating an offer for multicultural student success. Both recommendations were completed in 2015.
