To demonstrate Western Michigan University’s commitment to supporting Michigan’s economy in the Metro Detroit area, WMU offers two locations to serve the metropolitan community. In 2010, WMU opened a regional location on Woodward Avenue in Royal Oak to serve as a base of operations for our Detroit-area activities. A collaboration agreement signed in early 2013 between WMU and Wayne County Community College District (WCCCD) will expand WMU's growing presence in southeast Michigan. This pact will allow WMU to offer advanced classes at WCCCD's Mary Ellen Stempfle University Center in Harper Woods as early as May 2013.
WMU-MetroDetroit provides education solutions in locations that are easily accessible to students from both the city of Detroit and the suburbs.
WMU-MetroDetroit programs are designed for working adults who need to continue their education and professional development on a part-time basis.
Prospective students can choose from a master’s degree in organizational learning and performance, a graduate certificate program in alcohol and drug abuse treatment, or a bachelor's degree in university studies as part of a "two-plus-two" arrangement with WCCCD. In order to help working adults in the Detroit area advance their personal and professional lives, classes are scheduled during some evenings and weekends.
