Student Travel

On Giving Day, we are asking our alumni, donors and friends to support the many travel opportunities our students have throughout their time at the College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts.


Travel has lasting impact on our students' creativity but many of our students have not traveled beyond the state of Michigan. From enhancing global networking skills to experiencing a new culture, the benefits to our students’ education and career pathways are immense. Our creative warriors explore varying facets of the arts as part of their program at the college, a study abroad experience introduces them to new professors and experts in the field of their choice, exposing them to innovative viewpoints building upon their multicultural experiences right here in Detroit. The study abroad program truly touches all disciplines within the college and with our students traveling to Edinburgh, Scotland; Moscow, Russia; New York; Texas; Arizona and Rome, Italy during the next year, future recruiters will value the skills and attributes cultivated by studying abroad.



Wayne State faculty and staff can give via payroll deduction here.
