Join fellow students and WSU alumni for an insightful evening of networking and career development as the Wayne State University Alumni Association hosts Small Plates, Big Ideas on Thursday, February 1, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at Tierney Alumni House with Macomb County Undersheriff Elizabeth Darga. Learn from a successful female administrator on how to excel in the male-dominated field of policing. Darga, a 1986 graduate of Wayne State's criminal justice program, started her career as a corrections officer and progressively worked her way up the chain of command. She currently serves as the undersheriff in Macomb County, where she oversees the day-to-day operations of the third largest sheriff’s office in Michigan. Darga’s responsibilities also include management of the department’s $67 million dollar budget and more than 500 employees. 

Small Plates Big Ideas is a student success initiative that pairs Wayne State students with specially selected alumni for a career networking meal.
