Centers and Institutes
The most recent version of WSU's policy on centers and institutes, adopted on November 30, 2005, identifies a two-tiered category of centers and institutes. Centers are grouped first into university or college centers. University centers are engaged in activities that involve more than one college/school and are under the direct administrative supervision of the President or designee. Within the university centers are Type I (primarily academic) or Type II (research centers) with oversight generally falling to the Provost or the Vice President for Research, respectively. A college center is engaged in activities that primarily involve one college/school and is under the direct administrative supervision of the dean of that college/school.
Centers reporting to the Office of the Provost (Type I)
- Center for Urban Studies
- Cohn-Haddow Center for Judaic Studies
- Michigan Developmental Disabilities Institute
- Humanities Center
- Center for Peace and Conflict Studies
- Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies
Review of Type I Centers/Institutes
The review of Centers and Institutes is governed by Board of Governors Statute 2.23.01. Type I University centers and institutes are reviewed by the Center and Institute Advisory Committee (CIAC-I).
