    The Time is Right for Social Work Social Work Month 2022

    Dear Michigan Social Work Community,

    March is social work month and this year’s theme is The Time is Right for Social Work.

    The time has always been right for social work. For decades, social workers have been providing essential services, support for individuals, families and communities, and advocating for policies that create a better society. But today — as we face the ramifications of the pandemic, systemic racism, economic inequality and uncertainty, and climate crisis — the time is especially right for social work.

    Social workers have been at the forefront of these challenges, and our Michigan Social Work community has led the field in developing new innovations in practice, research and education.

    Social workers are empathetic problem solvers who make a difference in the world, every day. Social work month gives us the chance to recognize our hard work, dedication and achievements, while inspiring us to take on the toughest challenges in creating a society where everyone can live life to their fullest potential.

    Sincerely,

    Joseph Himle
    Interim Dean and Howard V. Brabson Professor of Social Work
