STEM Commons

Located in the STEM Innovation Learning Center, the STEM Commons enables students to have casual study sessions with friends and get help from trained peer mentors.

We help create and advance knowledge by facilitating student learning and collaborations among STEM scholars at Wayne State University. The commons helps prepare our diverse student body to thrive by supporting undergraduate students in their learning for and beyond their courses and facilitating the professional development of graduate students.

Our faculty and staff positively impact our communities through the engineering camps, by encouraging students to explore STEM beyond the classroom and by encouraging WSU researchers to share the knowledge they are creating with a broader audience.

For more information, please contact Karen Myhr, director.

Our goals

  • Facilitate collaboration among students taking STEM courses to construct their STEM knowledge and increase academic success 
  • Facilitate teaching and research collaborations across STEM disciplines and across levels of expertise (K-12 through professors) 
  • Connect STEM to real-world opportunities, careers and values
  • Encourage a growth mindset and sense of belonging for all students
