“Giving Day is an important opportunity to engage and support amazing projects and programs at the Mike Ilitch School of Business,” said Vanessa Miller, alumni and donor relations officer. “Every gift – large and small – makes a difference. It’s a way for the entire Wayne State community to come together and support our students and programs.”
