March is Social Work Month in the United States and this year’s theme is “Social Workers Break Barriers.” NYU Silver is proud to join in this month-long celebration of social workers and the role we play to dismantle obstacles that prevent people and communities from thriving. A key priority for Dean Michael A. Lindsey has been honoring Silver’s tradition of clinical excellence while strengthening the School’s emphasis on identifying and addressing the larger environmental and structural forces that shape people’s lives and perpetuate disparities.
Below is a list of NYU Silver’s 2023 Social Work Month events, all of which require registration. Please join us in honoring the Social Work profession!
