We know you agree that Dean Shank has made an historic impact not only on the St. Catherine University - University of St. Thomas School of Social Work, but on social work education nationally, and even internationally.  To honor her contributions over the last 40 years, we hope to raise additional funds for the Barbara W. Shank Endowed Scholarship in Social Work which will provide scholarship support for doctoral social work students from underrepresented/diverse backgrounds.
