Student Scholars Travel To D.C. For HEALS Summit

Reprinted from NASW News, April 2018

Forty-eight BSW and MSW students from across the country traveled to Washington, D.C., in March for educational sessions on health care, leadership and advocacy activities on Capitol Hill as part of the Social Work Health Care Education and Leadership Scholars (Social Work HEALS) Student Policy Summit.

The summit, which was hosted at NASW's national office, provided an opportunity for emerging social work leaders to learn about and participate in the policymaking process.

Combat Veterans Course Receives Innovative Teaching Award

“I feel comfortable speaking with veterans now and make sure to thank every veteran I see for their service. This class enabled me to discuss my uncle's service in Vietnam with him, the first time he has spoken to anyone about it since his return home in March of 1970. SW 491, Combat Veterans, has truly unlocked a piece of family history for me.” ~ Bryan Blattert, Fall 2017 student
