Schools of social work


Send us your news

Tell us what's going on in your school of social work and we'll publish it here.

We're interested in hearing about awards, new research, events, scholarships and other developments in the teaching and learning of social work.

Attach 50 words and a small JPEG photo to an email and send these to the Bulletin Editor by the Friday before the  national e-Bulletin issue.
