2021 Alumni Award Winner:
Ekta Shah ’13 ’14

All Monmouth BSW and MSW alumni are cordially invited to our 9th Annual Alumni Lecture!

This year’s event celebrates the launch of our new Certificate in Aging, this continuing education certificate is an opportunity to earn CE hours needed for licensure while gaining expertise in the area of gerontological social work. Dr. Jeanne Koller will deliver a lecture on the many options available to institutes of higher education to advance age inclusivity including the development of lifelong learning programs. The CE hours earned during this event will count towards the Certificate in Aging.

Additionally, we will once again be raising funds for the Louis E. Cimaglia ’08 Memorial Scholarship in Social Work. While the event is free, we are suggesting registrants make a $10 donation to Lou’s scholarship in order to keep his memory alive and support current MSW students in their educational efforts.

We hope to see you on Zoom for this year’s lecture! Spread the word and register today!
