Social Work on the Bridge

Social Work took over the MSC Bridge in the Fall and again in the Spring semester to raise awareness of Social Work and social issues.

In celebration of Social Work Month, Social Work faculty and staff connected with the UMSL Community in early March. We posed the question to the UMSL Community: What is the most pressing issue in the upcoming November election? Over 300 people took the time to share their ideas. Among the top issues identified were healthcare, the economy, income inequality, student debt, and climate change.
