Cultivating Community Impact

Celebrating 100+ Years of Mizzou Social Work

Since its establishment, social work education at the University of Missouri has progressed, along with the profession, from the earliest stages of training to developing leaders for social and economic justice in the 21st century.

In honor of our centennial, we are hosting a series of speakers this fall. These events are free and open to the public.
