 Deliberative Democracy: join us for a Citizen Dialogue on Gerrymandering January 29, 2018!

Welcome to the Center for the Study of Citizenship!

Vital communities require informed, active citizens. The Center for the Study of Citizenship at Wayne State University is the premier global institution dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of promotion of citizenship.

The Center for the Study of Citizenship promotes interdisciplinary research and exchange about citizenship within a global community of scholars; students; political, community and business leaders; and the general public. Founded in 2001, the Center encourages analysis of the relationship between citizens and the political, social, economic, and cultural communities of which they are a part.

Towards these ends, the Center will:

  • Foster the study of citizenship as an interdisciplinary academic field
  • Establish a forum to stimulate and shape public discourse about citizenship
