Become a Leader at Your School.

Be A U-Link Advocate! 

Help shape the social work profession for students in Michigan by becoming a U-Link Advocate! U-Link is a NASW-Michigan initiative that identifies students leaders from each social work program in Michigan who will serve as a link between their respective program and National Association of Social Workers. It is our hope that through this initiative, a stronger working relationship will be created between the universities and the NASW-Michigan Chapter.
