Commitment to Action

University-PreK-12 Partnerships for Innovation

Commitment by

Wayne State University

In 2010, Wayne State University (WSU) committed to expanding its partnership with Detroit Public Schools (DPS) by assisting the District in implementing a series of school reform initiatives. DPS faces severe financial exigencies, high student dropout rates, low student test scores on standardized achievement tests, and crumbling academic and physical infrastructures. To address these issues, WSU will work with DPS on a series of projects designed to significantly expand the likelihood of students' access to and success in post-secondary education. These projects include a summer math initiative for middle school students as well as professional development programs for early childhood, math, science, health, and physical education educators in the district.
