Four earn doctoral degrees at SSW in 2020

Four doctoral students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Social Work have completed all requirements to earn the Doctor of Philosophy in Social Work (Ph.D.) in 2020. The new graduates are Erum Agha, Joseph Frey, Sarah Rabiner and Joy Stewart.

Agha entered the School in 2015 and completed her three-paper dissertation on “Health and Behavioral Health Needs of Resettled Refugee Women in the United States.” In her research, she examined the incidence and prevalence of mental illness among refugee women, analyzing a national data set and collecting perspectives from refugees and care providers.

The Carolina Center for Public Service presents the awards annually to honor individuals and organizations for outstanding contributions to the campus and broader communities.

Celebration and closure, without ceremony

UNC School of Social Work’s Class of 2020 hasn’t held its formal commencement ceremony. There have been no pride-filled processionals on campus, no decorated mortarboards, no long-awaited walks across the stage and hugs from friends and favorite professors — not yet. These beloved traditions have all been postponed.

SSW honors soon-to-be graduates with two virtual celebrations

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Social Work will honor 142 students this weekend during two virtual celebrations online.

Among these students, 138 have completed requirements for the Master of Social Work degree and four have completed requirements for the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) in Social Work degree. The School will award these degrees formally during a commencement ceremony later in 2020, after restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic have been lifted.

A virtual reception for Ph.D. students in the Class of 2020 is scheduled for Friday evening, according to Associate Dean for Doctoral Education Mimi Chapman.
