UMSSW’s Homecoming Goes Virtual!
Social Work in the Workplace: Turning
the Tables on Critical Conversations
Monday, June 22 nd  from 9:30 am – 1:00 pm
We are excited to announce that our annual UMSSW Homecoming is rescheduled and going virtual this month!
As Maryland and the UMB campus pandemic guidelines now require, we will all gather ONLINE to share interesting presentations and LIVE Q&A. Plus, we will have a very special celebration of this year’s Alumni Association Awards. 
Moving to a virtual setting gives us the opportunity to reach alumni far beyond the Baltimore/DC Region, as UMSSW Homecoming has officially gone global!

Please join us on  Monday, June 22 nd   from 9:30 am – 1:00 pm  to celebrate the 40 th  Anniversary of the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) as we discuss  “Social Work in the Workplace: Turning the Tables on Critical Conversations.”
