Almost 7,700 Warriors — approximately 25% of the Wayne State community — responded to a campuswide survey in May, providing information that will be helpful in estimating the community’s COVID-19 vaccination status as the university transitions back to campus to prepare for the fall. Overall, survey respondents revealed a high vaccination rate. Three quarters (75.2%) of the respondents (5,570 out 7,404 in weighted data) were fully vaccinated and 84.6% received at least one dose of the vaccine.

Wayne State to serve as anchor institution in Detroit's Choice Neighborhoods Initiative

As part of this $30 million grant, Wayne State University will support the city’s program to provide economic development initiatives to the Greater Corktown neighborhood. The city engaged the community around creating a framework for the grant beginning in March 2019. At that time, Wayne State’s Center for Urban Studies was selected through a competitive process to serve as the resident needs and evaluation partner.
