Message from the Dean
Welcome to the Irvin D. Reid Honors College at Wayne State University!
Honors represents the very best this great university has to offer in a comprehensive package that promotes student achievement, academic excellence, successful graduation and launch on a career.
Honors is the place for students who want not only an outstanding college education but also to make a difference in the world. Students bring their gifts, talents and aspirations to Wayne State in Detroit, a place where need is great and where the potential for change is profound.
The Irvin D. Reid Honors College is city-based and service-oriented; we promote excellence and challenge our students to engage the world around them as problem-solvers and leaders. Our curriculum requires that students inform themselves about what it means to be citizens, of this city, this country, the world; we give our students tools, tools to be catalysts for innovation and improvement, and the skills necessary to create powerful solutions.
The young women and men who are students here — with the generous support and guidance of faculty, staff, friends and alumni — are inventing our shared future.
If, at any time, you would like to discuss our work or request more information, I hope you will be in touch.
