Diversity, equity and inclusion

Supporting inclusive teaching and learning in history

Wayne State University brings diverse faculty, staff, and students together in the heart of Detroit. The history department is dedicated to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all members of our departmental community, making the study of history accessible and welcoming for all. In order to support our students and provide an inclusive and safe educational experience, this page also connects faculty and students with resources to report suspected abuses for conflict resolution.
