Channel 19 interview 1

Field reporter, Sia Nyorkor, of WOIO Channel 19 Action News reached out to the University of Akron School of Social Work regarding our Addictions Curriculum. Through the efforts and vision of Dr. Jill Dickie, we presently provide:

  • Undergraduate opportunities for an Addictions Minor or Certificate via 11 different addictions related courses. 

  • Graduate opportunities that include 5 addictions courses aligned with state requirements for obtaining an LICDC (Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor)

On Wednesday, September 20th, Channel 19 interviewed our own Professor of Instruction, John Ellis, as well as MSW Students, Marisa Campbell and Megan Solsman, regarding our Addictions Track. It is nice to know the community is taking notice of the fine work being done within the School of Social Work.
