"Critical Convos” Hosted by the UMSSW Alumni Association

The UMSSW Alumni Association will host more virtual “Critical Convo” events in October. The “Critical Convo” events look to create dialogue and facilitate conversations on critical topics relating to social work education, research and the role of the profession in the community and beyond. Our newly elected Alumni Association Board of Directors President, Lori James-Townes will serve as host and moderator for each event. We hope you can join us for at least one if not all, this fall.
