Celebrating 40 Years

Welcome to this section of our Department Pages that highlights the celebration of 40 years of social work at St. Olaf College in 2017 and 2018!

In anticipation, we are sending out quarterly e-newsletters to all social work alums, and others who are interested. Maybe you completed another major at St. Olaf, and then went into social work? Maybe you are not an actual social worker, but affiliate with the profession through the work you do? Maybe you just hang out with social workers, because, as Susie likes to say “social workers are the cool people”? And maybe you’re thinking about changing careers because “Social Workers Make America Care Again” (NASW, 2017)? Whatever your reasons, check back here often for updates on what is happening in the program at St. Olaf and where in the world our graduates are doing good and doing well. And if you want to be certain to receive the newsletter and any updates, make certain your information is current with Alumni and Parent Relations

And hold FridaySunday, September 21-23, 2018 to celebrate 40 years of social work with events during Homecoming and Family weekend on our beautiful campus!

Read our newsletters to find out what your colleagues, and professors are doing.
