Alumni Week of Service

Thank you for making Alumni Week of Service 2023 a success!

For one week annually in the fall, Wayne State alumni from around the world come together to showcase the incredible ways that #WarriorsGiveBack. Volunteering is easy when you do something you love or that you’re already involved in. Warriors are encouraged to select a project that best aligns with their lifestyle and passions, or to self-report a volunteer project of their own. Regardless of how or where you volunteer, we want to celebrate you during Alumni Week of Service.

Our generous Warrior community dedicated more than 180 hours to projects that supported more than 15 organizations. Thank you, again, for your time and undying commitment to moving Wayne State and our global community forward.
