In recognition of March as Social Work Month, Mount Mercy’s Social Work Organization and Social Work Program will host a student and alumni reception on Monday, March 29 at 7:00 p.m. in Flaherty Community Room, Basile Hall on the Mount Mercy College Campus.
The reception is free and open to the public. Students interested in pursuing a degree in social work are invited to attend and learn more about the unique opportunities social work offers. A panel of Mount Mercy social work alumni will discuss their social work activities since graduating from college, and will be available for questions. Attendees will gain valuable information on career opportunities, education requirements, and real-life social work experiences.
Mount Mercy’s social work program is designed to give students an understanding of human functioning in contemporary society, the challenges and problems people encounter, and the social services available to them.
Mount Mercy’s Social Work Organization is oriented to the service mission of the college and gives its members the opportunity to take part in relevant volunteer experiences applicable to any major. They encourage members to take part in service through meal teams serving the local Catholic Worker Houses, forming a team for Mercy Hospital’s Race Against Breast Cancer, an overnight homeless experience/fundraiser, and various other campus-led service projects.
For more information on the reception please contact Associate Professor of Social Work Joni Howland at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 319-363-8213 ext. 1235.
