CSWE Mourns the Loss of A Former President 

Dr. Barbara W. White photoCSWE would like to share some words to honor the late Dr. Barbara W. White, who passed away on July 19, 2019.

While Dr. White’s enduring contributions to social work and social work education is far-reaching, we would like to acknowledge and express our gratitude that she lent her wise counsel and unsurpassed skills to CSWE through her service to the organization as President from 1998-2001. Dr. White was then recognized for her many contributions by being awarded CSWE’s Significant Lifetime Achievement in Social Work Education Award in 2010. This was in recognition  of her entrepreneurship over the course of her distinguished career.  She dedicated her career and scholarship to the areas of cultural diversity, women, and domestic violence. Barbara was a gifted public speaker and leader in the field of social work education and she will be sorely missed.
