School of Social Work Continuing Education
Social Work Community Sharing Events
We host monthly workshops for professionals to learn new skills, hear current research and share best practices with one another. These events are open to everyone and CEU-qualifying education credit hours are usually available for participation. Please check back in the fall for our schedule. Have a great summer!
Free/Low Cost Community Events
These events are not hosted by continuing education, but are great opportunities to continue to learn and grow as a professional!
