Wayne State emphasizes student success with new space; $600,000 grant renewal

Wayne State University’s Board of Governors doubled down on the university’s commitment to teaching, learning and student success at its September meeting, with the approval of $1.15 million to create the Undergraduate Warrior 360 Academic Engagement Hub, which will be located in the 24-hour study area in the Undergraduate Library. It is expected to open by the end of January 2024.

“Our strategic focus on social and economic mobility has pushed us to develop innovative strategies to not only ensure graduation, but to also ensure every student leaves our campus with prospects of a fulfilling career,” said Darryl Gardner, assistant vice president for student success. “We firmly understand that students who are actively engaged, connected, and included in our community are more likely to achieve graduation and enjoy the benefits of a college education.”
