In the year 2017, Columbia University’s School of Social Work delivered over 35 faculty- and student-organized events using a variety of tools: Livestream, Facebook LIVE, and Adobe Connect. Many people—typically, hundreds for each event—took advantage of the opportunity to participate remotely in the intellectual life of our School. Their numbers included student prospects, alumni, field educators, and practicing social workers, from all over the United States as well as from overseas. Gathering together online, they formed new contacts and communities, a number of which have continued off-line.

Please check the list below for archived events that you may have missed or would like to watch again. And please note: We will continue to offer this service in 2018, with an equally rich mix of events. Be sure to join us!

    It is magnificent to read that you will be offering past seminars for attendance & the attainment of CEUs through live stream. Many alumni, although they desire to attend your seminars & to earn continuing education credits, lack the health & resources to travel long distances. Further, a tutorial was offered on registering through Event Brite & we look forward to this being a more facile process in the future. Thank you very much.
