2016 Annual Conference Registration

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Theme: Developing the Next Generation of Social Work Scholars

The Group for the Advancement of Doctoral Education (GADE) in Social Work is an organization composed of more than 80 social work doctoral program directors worldwide who represent their member universities. Founded in the late 1970s, GADE’s primary purpose is to promote excellence in doctoral education in social work, especially through networking, information sharing, and advocacy.

GADE convenes an annual conference of its members to promote this mission.

The 2016 conference will be held March 30 – April 1, on the campus of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC).

UNC is the nation’s first public university. Its 729-acre campus is distinguished by brick walkways, stone walls, and oak trees; it is considered one of the most beautiful and historic universities in the nation. The U.S. News and World Report ranks UNC 30th among national universities, and ranks the UNC School of Social Work fifth. UNC is one of the many reasons why Chapel Hill is rated one of the best places in America to live, and one of the best college towns in the nation.
