School of Social Work Open House

Return to Event

The Wayne State University School of Social Work invites you to join us for an Open House event welcoming the community to experience our renovated building space. Attendees will mix and mingle with fellow Warriors, community members and friends as they complete an interactive scavenger hunt and learn what distinguishes us as Detroit's Social Work School. 

This event will also feature the Maryann Mahaffey Courtyard Dedication. Maryann Mahaffey empowered social change in Detroit as a social worker, author, educator, civil rights activist, volunteer and political leader. For nearly 60 years at the local, state, national and international levels, Mahaffey put into action her deep commitment to solving critical social issues. Holding steadfast in her ideals, she supported the most vulnerable of our citizens and advocated for equal rights as Detroit City Council president for 12 years and as a council member for 32 years. To memorialize and honor the impact Mahaffey had on Detroit, its residents and the social work profession, the Wayne State University School of Social Work launched the Maryann Mahaffey Legacy Campaign and will be dedicating a courtyard at our Woodward home in her honor.

Appetizers will be provided.

Students can earn a Warrior Rewards path point by attending this event. 

We invite guests to bring family and friends to join in the celebration of our renovated Woodward home! All guests must complete the RSVP and guest screener prior to arrival. Please be sure to have your phone on hand to display your campus screener approval. All WSU campus guidelines will be adhered to.
