BSW students Carrie Sturgeon, left, and Jessica Rader, right, were selected to attend the Baccalaureate Program Directors Conference in March 2014. Funded through the Social Work Excellence Endowment, this horizon-expanding experience has already had a positive impact on our two undergraduate students. Jessica stated "aside from all the fun things to do around the city of Louisville, there were many events and sessions involving the social work profession. Every day I could pick and choose which research paper presentations, workshops. and round tables I wanted to attend." According to Carrie, "I feel as though I gained knowledge and insight into many areas of practice that I otherwise may not have encountered. I am thankful for the opportunity that I had and hope that other students are also able to attend this conference in the future."
