On Thursday, April 21, the Wayne State School of Social Work will host an open house and ribbon cutting from 3 to 5 p.m. to celebrate its new home at 5447 Woodward Avenue. The school moved to the new location in January 2016 from Thompson Home, the building at Cass and Hancock it had occupied since 1991.
The celebration, which is open to the public, will feature brief remarks by Dean Cheryl Waites and President M. Roy Wilson, as well as students, faculty and donors. The school will offer refreshments and tours of its new building, which recently underwent the first of a two-phase renovation. Guests can view Phase II renderings on display throughout the building and hear from faculty and students about ongoing social work research, community projects and educational initiatives.
RSVP at http://specialevents.wayne.edu/ssw-ribbon-cutting or by calling (313) 577-0300.
Complimentary Parking will be available in lots 23 and 32 both located on Palmer Street – east and west of Cass Avenue. A shuttle will run from these lots to the new building and back from 2 to 6 p.m.
