Wayne State University School of Social Work opens its doors to the Detroit community – [email protected]

The Wayne State University School of Social Work invites the local community to a Open day event welcoming friends and neighbors to his home at 5447 Woodward Avenue. The event will take place from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 29.

During the open house, attendees will mingle with warriors and community members while participating in an interactive scavenger hunt and learning what sets WSU apart as Detroit’s school of social work. Faculty, staff, and students will be on hand to discuss school programs, community engagement opportunities, and research efforts.

This event will also feature the dedication of the Maryann Mahaffey Court. Mahaffey has promoted 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 has put his deep commitment to solving critical social issues into action. True to her ideals, she supported the most vulnerable and advocated for equal rights as Detroit City Council president for 12 years and as a council member for 32 years. To commemorate and honor Mahaffey’s impact on Detroit, its people, and the social work profession, the School of Social Work launched the Maryann Mahaffey Legacy Campaign and will dedicate a yard at his Woodward home in his honor.

Appetizers will be provided and attendees are encouraged to bring guests.
