Grand Valley School of Social Work - 2008 Cohort from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan

Grand Valley State University is proud to announce the 2008 graduates of the Master of Social Work program from the Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan Cohort.  Thirteen students graduated in August with distinction with their MSW degree.  This cohort of thirteen students, along with the four student cohorts who have preceded them, consisted of American and Canadian social work students who represent diverse perspectives, world views, and cultural origins.  The opportunity to collaborate, study, and learn within multicultural, international contexts accentuates the preparation and skill of our graduates.

Our students participated in a commencement ceremony, held in Traverse City on May 1st, 2008, that celebrated family and the nontraditional nature of the students engaged in post secondary education.  The ceremony acknowledged the importance of family as a natural support network during advanced master's level course work, and the importance this has on goal achievement.

Congratulations MSW graduates.  Your graduate social work education has provided you the opportunity to grow personally, professionally, and academically as Social Workers, so that you may continue to influence the world around you.

Grand Valley State University is a public institution with a local, regional, and state commitment, as well as a global perspective.  The main graduate campus is located in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  The School of Social Work offers a Masters of Social Work degree to student cohorts located in Traverse City and Sault Ste. Marie at the Lake Superior State University campus.
