WSU Board of Governors statement — May 31, 2024

At Wayne State University, we take pride in being the region’s premier public urban research university. We strive to make our campus welcoming, safe and inclusive for all and our focus will always be the success of our students. Every student deserves full access to our world-class education. 

As our President Kimberly Andrews Espy works to accomplish these goals, the WSU Board of Governors stands with her and supports her. Recent events on the university campus, including yesterday’s removal of the encampment, have been difficult for many. From attempting resolution through dialogue to safely clearing the encampment, university leadership’s decisions have been thoughtful and deliberate. 

We look forward to continuing to work together to help ensure the success of all our students.
