School of Social Work Event Calendar

Of all Dr. King’s messages, one of his most prominent was the issue of poverty.  The School of Social Work at U of I will be hosting a poverty simulation to help local community members and students to better understand the issues, hurdles, and roadblocks faced by those living in poverty.  The simulation will allow participants an opportunity to debrief their experiences and think about how they can begin to tackle the challenge of poverty in Champaign County.
