The WSU College of Education Alumni Association was found in 1893 in connection with the Detroit Normal Training School, the forerunner of today's college. Our alumni bring to life the vision of Wayne State University's College of Education each and every day by:

  • Fostering a spirit of loyalty to the college
  • Maintaining high standards for the teaching profession
  • Assisting professionally and financially those who need help continuing their education
  • Keeping alive the spirit of fellowship
  • Encouraging productive contacts between the student body and the alumni

The Wayne state University Alumni Association is now a non-due based organization. All those who graduate from WSU automatically become part of the alumni association, without formally joining or paying dues.
