LUBBOCK – In honor of National Professional Social Work Month, Texas Tech University’s
Social Work Program will hold a celebration from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 28 on the
south lawn of Holden Hall.
At this year’s event, titled Social Work Celebration, students can find out more about
area social work practice options and agencies. Local professionals will describe
what their agencies do for the community, as well as answer questions about the career
path in general. The free event also features games and prizes.
“The Social Work Celebration provides a unique opportunity for students to network
with local professional social workers," said Helen Morrow, director of the Social
Work Program. “This is the second year for the event, and we’re planning to have several
professional social workers from different areas of the field on hand to share their
experiences with the students.”
The theme for National Social Work Month for 2006 is “Life’s Journey: Help Starts
Here.” The goal of National Social Work Month is to showcase how social workers help
people at every stage of life while promoting dignity for everyone, especially the
most vulnerable citizens.
Texas Tech University's baccalaureate social work degree program is a division of
the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Work and is accredited by the
Council on Social Work Education.
The Social Work Division has been active for more than 30 years and continues to enjoy
widespread acceptance in the professional community in Texas and across the nation.
