Wayne State University - Office of the Provost

Provost Brown has asked Huron Consulting Group to review alternative leadership models for the Graduate School. Specifically, he has asked for comparative information regarding whether graduate schools are free-standing units or combined with research.  He is also interested in exploring the benefits and challenges of each organizational structure.

Representatives from Huron will solicit the perspectives of Wayne State faculty regarding which model may be most appropriate for the university. These representatives will briefly present the information gathered to date and request feedback from participants on several key factors.

Please join us for one of these sessions:

  • Tuesday, October 16 from 5:30-6:30 p.m., Margherio Family Conference Room, Mazurek Medical Education Commons, School of Medicine
  • Wednesday, October 17 from 10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m., Bernath Auditorium, Undergraduate Library

Jennifer Hubert will conduct these presentations/discussions. She is a director in Huron’s education consulting practice who has worked with Wayne State for more than two years on projects related to research and research administration. Most recently, she led the project to review selected WSU research operations. 

Rand Haley, also a director at Huron, will assist with these discussions. He has worked with research institutions for more than 10 years on strategy and analysis projects related to sponsored research; most recently, he led the initial assessment of WSU’s research core facilities.

Thank you.
