Highlights: College of Social Work
College of Social Work's REACH Campaign highlights:
The Wilford W. and Dorothy P. Goodwill Humanitarian Building
Certainly our "new" building is our crowning campaign achievement. The 15,000 square foot structure includes:
- The Okazaki Community Meeting Roomit is in steady use for educational classes, trainings, and socials, community events (e.g., Alumni Speed Mentoring for students, Neighbors Helping Neighbors client socials, Women's Week film presentation, College of Social Work 75th Anniversary events, etc.), meetings for faculty and staff as well as for boards, and more.
- Two Clinical Training Suites that carry the names of long-time friends of the College (Thackeray and Bireley) and provide crucial training experiences for our students.
- The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Classroomthe first technology-enhanced classroom in the College has served students across the state for the past five years.
- Goodwill Conference Room—state of the art space for College meetings and specially-approved University meetings.
- The building also includes offices, a reception area, a student lounge, and a client waiting area.
Katie L. Dixon Women & Girls Leadership Endowed Fund
Since 2006, over 500 grade-school, middle-school, and high-school girls have participated in the College's Dixon Girls Forums. The forums provide information on issues related to body image, communication skills, leadership development, financial literacy, and more. They also provide an opportunity for these students to build peer relationships, participate in community service efforts, and explore future educational and career options.
A 20% increase in endowments for scholarships
The College added 5 endowments for scholarships since 2005—increasing our total from 20 to 25. (NOTE: This is not a 20% increase in the scholarship dollars we have to award from endowments, but an increase in named endowments for scholarships.)
A program support fund and multiple annual awards and scholarships were created over the course of the campaign. Notably, many of these came from College of Social Work faculty. Names available upon request.
