Did you know that at the time the School of Social Work was founded in 1964, more than 78 percent of people in social work positons in Georgia had no social work training? We’ve come a long way since those days! We're so proud of our alumni who have pioneered social work programs and ideas that have become basic to the wellbeing of our state! In honor of these alumni, we’re introducing a new feature on our website: "Trailblazers."

In this section, you'll read first-person stories from graduates who experienced what it was like to learn about and practice social work during the School’s first two decades.
