DETROIT (AP) - Wayne State University’s School of Social Work is ready to show off its new home and plans for further development.

The Detroit university is holding an open house and ceremonial ribbon-cutting on Thursday. The public event marks the social work college’s January move into its own building on Woodward Avenue from space it occupied for about 25 years in The Thompson Home.

The open house includes tours and short speeches by Wayne State President M. Roy Wilson and School of Social Work Dean Cheryl Waites. Guests also will see renderings of future additions at the school: a media center for online learning, video conferencing and continuing education and corresponding on-site classrooms.

The school also plans lectures, forums and other events in a “community engagement lounge” and new conference room spaces.
