President M. Roy Wilson and the Wayne State University Alumni Association invite you back to campus to participate in a special ceremony and celebration honoring your graduation from Wayne State University.

It's an important academic tradition that after years of study and hard work, students gather with classmates, university leadership, friends and family to celebrate their college graduation with a commencement ceremony. President M. Roy Wilson knows how much that recognition means to students and their loved ones. That’s why, at his request, we ask you to join us for this special event, dubbed Commencement Redux, for the students who graduated during the height of the pandemic but were unable to attend in-person commencement.
