Social Work Awareness Month Activities at FAU

The School of Social Work celebrated March as Social Work Awareness Month with a number of activities. Acolyte put on its largest and most successful Career Fair for MSW and BSW students, thanks to the hard work of Sherry Weinshenk, Patrice Migliori, and many others. The School of Social Work and the National Association of Social Workers-Palm Beach Unit put on a social work awards breakfast, honoring FAU student Sarah Holland and Professor Cecilia Campoverde, among others. Speakers included FAU Associate Provost Diane Alperin, College for Design and Social Inquiry Dean Rosalyn Carter, and Director Michele Hawkins. Dr. Campoverde’s class also brought in the Palm Beach County Director of Elections so students could learn how to empower various populations to vote.  Can you pick out who’s who from the photos?

Representative Dorothy  Hukill meets FAU SW

Forty FAU students and professors trekked hundreds of miles from southern Florida to Tallahassee on March 24 to 25 to advocate for social justice, and advocate they did! We learned all about the bills currently being considered, researched our positions, and spoke face-to-face with numerous Senators, Representatives, and key staff people. We were able to obtain co-sponsors for the social work title legislation, request equity and fairness for property tax reform, educate legislators about the rights of foster children and people with mental health issues, advocate for equal treatment for gay men and lesbian parents who want to adopt, and let the “government of the people” know some of the key priorities for making Florida a more socially just society for all of Florida’s people. We learned that advocacy is not only an ethical obligation for all social workers, but an activity that all social workers can participate in. FAU won the award for biggest improvement in the number of advocates we sent, from 7 last year to 40 this year. Join us next year for a new record – no school has ever sent 100 students. We can do it!
