WHAT I SUPPORT
WSU’s Graduation Rate

Wayne State’s graduation rate is improving at the fastest  pace in the nation, currently ranking among the highest of all urban universities. This is in addition to record-setting improvement in the graduation rate among African-American students. But there is more work to be done. Wayne State is a critical economic, education and innovation pipeline that builds on the city’s assets and enhances the region’s growth.

Supporting Students

​As a first-generation Wayne State alumna, I will ensure that Wayne State remains known for welcoming first-generation students with open arms and providing the resources to keep them enrolled. Wayne State’s ability to make students feel like they belong on Day One is what makes the university emblematic of hope and opportunity.

Keeping Higher Education Affordable

Supporting Wayne State’s efforts to remain an affordable premier institution of higher learning is vital. The current economic recession in Michigan, brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, will put additional strain on Wayne State’s financial resources. I am committed to keeping Wayne State’s tuition affordable. That commitment extends to helping the university, which has the lowest tuition rate of Michigan’s three major research universities, remain Michigan’s premier urban institution of higher learning.
