KF"The education I received through the MSW program at Wayne State University prepared me to engage in social justice work in the community and in higher education. The MSW is seen as an asset by my supervisors and has helped me positively impact individuals, communities, and larger social problems. Being a social worker isn't just a degree it's part of my identity and the Code of Ethics has guided me throughout my 25 years of practice. "
