School of Social Work Student Representative

Rajan Varmon

Rajan Varmon is an MSW student focusing in the I-CPL concentration. Born and raised in Detroit, he became involved in the field of social work through his interest in mental health but he eventually became involved in politics through his advocacy efforts of House Bill 4325: a bill that would help secure LPC's rights to effectively perform their duties in the state of Michigan. After receiving a State Tribute for the bill's passing, it became clear he wanted to pursue the field of macro social work. He is honored to be able to serve as the Student Representative for the School of Social Work and is dedicated to bringing about positive changes for the Wayne State community.

Rajan's goals as the School of Social Work Student Representative:

  • Increase community-building efforts within the WSU School of Social Work student population
  • Advocate for more macro-level opportunities.
  • Improve communication between students and faculty members.

Rajan encourages students and peers to contact him by email ( for questions, comments, ideas, or concerns.
