"The professors at Kent had a way of tying in real world experience which made the learning experience even more fascinating. I cherish the 3 years I spent in this wonderful program and I am very thankful for continuing to be able to proudly say I am a graduate of the Kent School of Social Work." -- Lori Paris '07 MSSW
"Before coming to Kent, I had spent almost 20 years at a Fortune 500 company. My office closed down and I made the decision then to pursue my MSSW. With the support and encouragement from the professors and my colleagues at the Kent School, I am now walking in my calling as a clinician at Adult Protective Services, investigating abuse, neglect and exploitation of vulnerable adults." -- Sandi Whiteside, '06 MSSW, CSW
"I am so grateful to Kent School for creating the nation’s first Endowed Chair in Oncology Social Work! This development has already advanced our field and gained national recognition for our school. This led me to the decision to pursue my PhD. The Kent School gave me all I needed to be a great social worker back in 1996, and more recently, Kent gave me all I needed to become a great social scientist." -- Tara Schapmire '12 PhD.
"The Kent School's emphasis on critical thinking and evidence-based practice have served me well both as a social work practitioner and researcher. I am thankful for the caring faculty and committed students who helped create such a meaningful learning environment." -- Martin Hall '04 MSSW, (now Kent Faculty)
"As a non-traditional student and single-parent, I faced various challenges. I have never experienced an academic advisor and program assistant more committed to student success. Our professors are experts at what they do and they are called around the globe to share their expertise. They are compassionate, committed to social justice, and challenging. Whether an intense game of kickball, a great lecture, or a word of encouragement, they give with the goal of developing excellence." -- Keneysha Rodney, '12 BSW
