From the Vice President

May 11, 2016

Welcome to the inaugural edition of “Wayne Engaged,” the newsletter of the Division of Government and Community Affairs. The purpose of this publication is to inform readers of current events and relevant activities of the Division’s work on behalf of Wayne State University with governmental entities in Lansing and Washington DC, and of the University’s engagement in the community.

Each quarter, the newsletter will highlight various events and issues in each of the Division’s departments – Federal Affairs, State Affairs and Community Affairs.  Topics covered will include proposed legislation for higher education, state and federal funding policies, community outreach activities, and personal profiles on elected officials and community leaders.   The newsletter will also include feature stories on the exemplary community outreach efforts of our schools and colleges, as well as the stellar individual volunteer efforts of WSU faculty, staff, students and alumni.

It is my hope that you find this newsletter engaging and informative, and through its content, gain a greater appreciation for the University’s legislative efforts and impact in the community.  We welcome any feedback you have regarding the publication of our work.  Thanks for reading!
