Student published in "New Social Worker" magazine

Katie Ullman '11, a student in the Bachelor of Social Work program, was recently published in the "New Social Worker" online magazine.

Ullman's article, titled "How My Field Placement Showed Me Why I Wanted to be a Social Worker", describes how her experience in her field placement, or internship, helped her to more clearly define and express her passion for social work.

Ullman writes,"Social work is acting out of love for strangers in tangible ways. We are made to represent love so that all people we encounter have a more profound sense of hope and faith within themselves. We do the hard, intimate, sometimes painful work, and in return bring a little more of the divine into daily life. We get to remind one another about the bigger, more beautiful picture that we can’t always see from where we are."
