Welcome to the Center for the Study of Citizenship!

The Center for the Study of Citizenship at Wayne State University 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
