New ways to continue our mission

graphic text - "Social Work, Now More Than Ever"How have programs and activities at UNC School of Social Work changed during the coronavirus pandemic? The most visible change has been in instructional programs. All classes have moved to remote instruction, often via the online Zoom app. Although field education on-site activities have stopped, field instructors and task supervisors are working with students to create alternative approaches to the field experience (for example, telephone interviews with clients). There have even been some adjustments in the grading system to provide faculty and students with more flexibility.
