In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the founding of the UT College of Social Work, we are honoring 75 social workers—alums, faculty, staff, and others—whose work and lives exemplify the 12 Grand Challenges that have been identified by the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare.
The nineteenth grand challenger is C. Nicole Chandler, an alum of the MSSW program at the UT College of Social Work who has become a leader of innovative social work programs in the the Knoxville community. Her work addresses Social Work Challenge #11 as she works to build financial capability for all.
C. Nicole Chandler is the Executive Director of the Change Center Knoxville, a collaborative, citywide initiative. The Change Center provides state-of-the-art-facilities, recreation, mentorship, and leadership development to increase opportunities for youth to succeed through workforce development and access to educational opportunities from within the inner city.
