Thank you to faculty committee members and volunteers

The Graduate School relies on the time and expertise of dedicated graduate faculty throughout the year. Without these contributions we would not be able to provide the same degree of support and resources to students, postdoctoral scholars and faculty. To the faculty who served as committee members, advisors and presenters throughout the year, we are grateful for your time, insight, expertise, leadership, and your commitment to the success of outstanding students and faculty at Wayne State.
