Aim Higher


Make a Gift

The College of Education has a long history of a teaching, research and urban service mission. To continue our work in these three vital areas, private philanthropy is critical, especially in these economically challenging times.

There are many areas of need in the college for which gifts can make a significant difference, including scholarships for our students. Without the private support of generous donors who have established endowed or annual scholarships, many of our students would have to drop out or stop their academic programs.

We have many ways that you can help: annual giving or a planned gift are just two of the options.  We will be happy to work with you to develop a gift plan that is right for your goals as a philanthropist and your financial circumstances.  Please contact Joanne Osmer, the College of Education’s Development Officer, at 313-577-1664 or m.barden@wayne.edu if you are interested in exploring the variety of ways that you can provide financial support for the college.

We are constantly striving to meet the challenges of rising operational costs and tuition rates for our students.  If you would like to partner with us in our efforts, please consider making a gift.

Thank you for considering a gift to the College of Education!
