Social Work Marks Anniversary with ‘60 for 60’ Campaign

Giving News

The school has a 60-year heritage of educating social work professionals.

60 for 60. More than just a set of numbers, it’s become a rallying cry on the Forty Acres lately. The School of Social Work marks its 60th anniversary this academic year, and it has asked alumni and friends to consider a gift of $60 or more to help celebrate the milestone.

All funds raised are going to scholarships, allowing the nation’s 6th-ranked social work program to prepare more students for careers as human service professionals. Dr. Barbara White, who is completing her final year as dean of social work, calls 60 for 60 “an affordable and meaningful way to support ongoing excellence in social work education at UT — one dollar for each year the school has impacted lives for the better.”

Before they graduate and set out to positively change lives around the world, about one in every 10 students seeking a UT social work degree sees his or her own world changed for the better through a scholarship or fellowship. PhD student Amanda Barczyk, for one, is a recipient of the Michael R. Daley Endowed Presidential Scholarship for Doctoral Students.

The scholarship, which honors a prominent social work educator, “enables me to continue on the path of developing the skills and experience I need to reach my goals,” Barczyk says.
