Students from Marian University’s social work program presented at the Wisconsin Council on Social Work Education conference held April 4-5, 2019 in Wisconsin Dells. Student presenters include: Erica Wiese of Sheboygan, Amanda Schmahl of Kaukauna, Katelyn Schueffner of St. Cloud, and Macey Kniess of Wausau.
The students presented on the yearlong activities of the Marian University Student Social Work Association and “Help for the Homeless Hygiene Drive.” The drive realized more than 10,700 products, which equates to $20,000 in supplies, and they were donated to Fond du Lac area crisis programs. The “Help for the Homeless Hygiene Drive” collects personal care and cleaning products for agencies in northeast and central Wisconsin.
The conference provided students an opportunity to network with other social work students and professionals from Wisconsin and attend educational focus sessions on a wide variety of social work topics related to students.
Marian University was founded in 1936 by the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes in Fond du Lac, Wis. The institution has one of the lowest student-faculty ratios in the state and strives to live its core values as a community committed to learning, dedicated to service and social justice and joined together by spiritual traditions. Marian offers undergraduate, adult, master’s and doctoral degree programs at its main campus, in facilities throughout Wisconsin and online.
