The School of Social Work has received the largest individual gift in its history — $1 million from an alumna who has supported the school over the years and who wishes to remain anonymous.

“This generous gift from one of our alumni will allow us to continue educating the best and brightest in social work,” says Gail Steketee, dean of the graduate school. “We are extremely grateful to the donor and excited to be able to advance the field of social work for generations to come.”

Dispersed over five years, the gift will go toward student scholarships and special programs.
