Participate in LEAD Day

Participate in NASW LEAD Day - Legislative, Education and Advocacy Day - in Lansing with your fellow students.

Each year, the School of Social Work supports student participation in LEAD Day, where students spend a day in Lansing learning how Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at NASW-Michigan's role in Michigan's political process. Learn how you can become a key advisor to the legislators and an effective advocate for the social work profession and the State's most vulnerable citizens.

Answer a Call to Serve

Look for the Call to Serve issued in September.
