This year’s social work day will emphasize arts-based practice strategies for partnering with communities to create innovative social change/social justice initiatives. Within the field of social work we often talk about community practice, and community organizing as macro approaches to build large-scale movements or community-based programs to promote social justice. Within disciplines in the arts, socially engaged art is an approach that aims to create art that engages with the public and/or social issues within society. This year’s social work day theme aims to bring together approaches from within social work, the arts, and civic/community engagement in order to highlight some creative strategies for social change.

Continuing Education Opportunities at the ISU School of Social Work vary from our annual signature Social Work Day conference to smaller workshops with a narrower focus. These events will be announced on our main webpage, ISU calendar and social media. If you have any questions about upcoming opportunities please contact the CEU administrator at email@example.com
To process CEUs, we will need attendee's license number, payment, and email address as we will send certificates by email attachment. One CE credit is awarded for every classroom contact hour. In order to preserve the integrity of the learning experience and to comply with the state's certification requirements, attendance for the full session is expected and participants may receive continuing education credit only for hours of actual attendance.
In the spirit of the Social Work Department's mission to "provide leadership in undergraduate, graduate and continuing education, applied research, and both academic and community service with support from public and private partnerships", we are available to partner with agencies in providing continuing education opportunities. If your agency wishes to partner with ISU School of Social Work, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the following information: Name of Agency, contact name at agency, email/phone number, number of CEU hours and brief description of the CEU proposal. The ISU School of Social Work will then get in touch with you.
