Fall 2022 Heading link

This fall has ushered in a new season of learning, growing, and connection amongst Jane Addams College of Social Work students. JACSW colleagues are hard at work engaging in coursework, planning independent research, preparing and conducting dissertation work, and building community in the program. As Mary Church Terrell, an early social service pioneer described the importance of service and growth, JACSW students are hard at work paving new paths to equity through their work.
