On behalf of the University at Buffalo School of Social Work (UBSSW), you are cordially invited to attend the Celebration of Social Work, a special event to celebrate the contribution of our distinguished alumni and to make a meaningful impact on your alma mater.

Distinguished Alumni Awardees
Dr. Toby Laping, MSW '63
Dr. Nancy Kusmaul, PhD '13
Lisa Kaseman, JD/MSW '06

Many alumni express an interest in giving back to the UBSSW. Some of you volunteer as field educators, mentors and advisory board members. Here's an opportunity to support a student-led initiative. At the Celebration of Social Work event, three students, each representing a different initiative, will pitch live for your support (very short “elevator” pitches). Those in attendance will vote for their top choice, and the initiative that earns the most votes will be awarded 100 percent of the event registration fees.

One drink ticket and heavy hors d'oeuvres are provided by the school.

Please RSVP at the link to attend by October 3, 2018.
