We were pleased to highlight the expertise of our faculty for this year's workshop, “Approaching aging in new ways: Changing personal and professional perspectives to empower elders and strengthen families and communities." Presented by Tanya Rand, MSW, LICSW, Rochelle (Shelly) Rottenberg, MSW, LISW, and Amanda Thooft, MSW, LICSW, the topic reflects our commitment to a multi-generational society, valuing the perspective and role of elders in our professional and personal lives.

Congratulations to our BSW Field Instructor of the Year, Patrice Speltz of Little Sisters of the Poor and our MSW Field Instructor of the Year, Elaine Korsch of Lakeville Area Public Schools. Many thanks to ALL of our field instructors for the teaching, mentorship, support and guidance they’ve provided in co-creating valuable learning experiences with students this year.

A special thank you also goes out to Sarah LaValla (BSW student) and Kestrel Feiner-Homer (MSW student) whose spoken and sung reflections helped set the tone for this special celebration.
