We see the SIG as one critical mechanism to increase student input and further GADE's mission to promote excellence in doctoral education. We encourage doctoral program directors to invite their students to attend the SIG meeting.

GADE Reception - CANCELED

Saturday, January 15, 2022 at 7:30-9:00pm
Chinatown Conference Room on Meeting Level 3

The GADE Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel our GADE Reception at the 2022 SSWR Conference. Due to the unprecedented rise in recent coronavirus infections, we feel it is prudent to honor our awardees at an online live awards ceremony to be held in the very near future (date TBA). In addition to this virtual event, we will plan to recognize this year’s awardees again at the 2023 SSWR Annual Conference. The Board did not come to this decision lightly. After careful deliberation, we concluded that the risks outweighed the benefits and made the difficult decision to shift course.

While we will not have our GADE reception, we will still have a space available for conference attendees to connect informally. The Chinatown Conference Room on Meeting Level 3 at the Marriott Marquis DC has been reserved on Saturday, January 15 from 7:30pm-9:00pm for GADE members, colleagues, and friends to socialize and reconnect after the SSWR President’s Reception.

Session #340. View more here.

Current societal challenges highlight the critical role that social work doctoral programs play in preparing social work educators, scholars, and advanced practitioners. Accordingly, this symposia examines the landscape of doctoral education in social work. This examination considers social work faculty, students, and administrator perspectives on study curricula, and how DSW distinguishes themselves from PhD programs.
