President's Community Advisory Group

The President's Community Advisory Group (PCAG) was formed so that community leaders could provide feedback, comments, advice and insight to Wayne State University's president and Office of Government and Community Affairs regarding the university's current strategic plan, mission and other university priorities, and to assist with their implementation. WSU's community outreach efforts focus on the neighborhoods surrounding its main and satellite campuses, as well as the metro Detroit area as a whole.
