Congratulations to our fall 2020 graduates! The University’s Fall Commencement will include 19 BSSW and 31 MSW graduates. Two graduating students will receive the Dean’s Award for Academic Excellence:Yenisbel Viloria (MSW) and Dominique Mickler (BSSW). Congratulations to all!

We are thrilled to share that FIU’s School of Social Work was chosen from more than 100 universities nationwide to participate in The National Council for Behavioral Health’s learning collaborative on the opioid epidemic: Social Workers on the Front Lines of the Opioid Epidemic Learning Collaborative. Ten universities around the country were selected to participate in the project. The 20-month learning collaborative will begin by supporting each university as they refine or expand current coursework related to addiction. FIU’s School will look to expand the Graduate Certificate in Addictions and enhance substance abuse curriculum throughout the MSW and BSSW programs.

Upcoming Continuing Education Opportunities:

This spring we will be holding the Bi-annual Field Instructors’ Training (16 CEUs) on Friday, January 24th and Friday, January 31st. Because this training meets the requirements for the Qualified Supervisor Training, we have arranged for those individuals solely interested in the training for Qualified Supervisors to attend only the first 12 CEUs. In order to obtain the Qualified Supervisor Training, you will need to attend all day on Friday, January 24th and half-day (8:30-12:30) on Friday, January 31st.

For information and registration, please contact Jessica Arguello at 305-348-3881 or
sowpracticum@fiu.edu. Reduced rates are given for alumnae and task supervisors who are not currently Field Instructors. Stay tuned for information on other continuing education events occurring this spring!
