Campus News & Announcements
On Friday May 3rd, Margaret Presley and David Norlin, Associate Professors in Social Work, and Deb Marseline, part time instructor in Social Work, presented a 3 hour training on "Social Work Identity and Ethics in Multidisciplinary Work Settings & Teams." The work shop was sponsored by the Smoky Hill Association of Social Workers and was open to members and others needing Ethics training in order to renew their license. This is the seventh year the trio has done a workshop on professional ethics for the organization. A different topic is chosen each year which keeps the presenters fresh and learning new material about ethics. "It is a way to give back to the professional community for all the support they give to social work education on a regular basis."
