Two College of Social Work MSSW students, Shannon Rosedale and Jenn Christian, participated in the Knoxville Neighborhoods Conference as an outgrowth of community engagement components of the qualitative research on microenvironments work with Dr. Lisa Reyes Mason. Jenn Christian, Graduate Research Assistant and MSSW Candidate, was invited to participate in a panel discussion at the March 7 event. The opportunity developed from a combination of the qualitative research on microenvironments and a community development project she undertook through Dr. Mary Rogge’s Social and Economic Development class.
Accredited continuously by the Council on Social Work Education since 1945.
