The Academy of Scholars is committed to recognizing outstanding excellence in scholarship and in creative achievement of the faculty members at Wayne State University. The Academy's founding purpose was and has remained to raise the scholastic prestige of the university by bringing the most prominent academic experts to campus under its aegis and to create a community of scholars from among its most celebrated researchers.

The functions of the Academy are to promote creative achievement in scholarship by recognition and provision of incentives, to attract young scholars of outstanding promise, to bring to the University for a given period of time distinguished scholars from other institutions, to sponsor meetings of all types which stimulate interdisciplinary intellectual activity, and to promote intellectual interchange at all levels.
