It is an honor to serve as interim dean of the School of Social Work. Under the leadership of Dean Lynn Videka, the School has thrived. We have completed a five-year strategic plan, which included a new online, part-time program and established eight new curricular pathways in our MSW program. We’ve steered through the uncharted waters of the pandemic and are just concluding the celebrations of our School’s Centennial.
As we begin our second century, we are moving forward to create changes in our field and in our society. More than ever, the world needs social workers, and the School of Social Work is educating our field’s next practitioners, researchers and leaders.
I look forward to working with alumni, faculty, students and staff during this transition period.
