The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign School of Social Work is holding a year-long lecture series designed to meet the profession's grand challenge of harnessing technology for social good. The American Academy for Social Work and Social Welfare spearheaded the Grand Challenges of Social Work, representing 12 challenges focused on improving individual and family well-being, strengthening the social fabric, and helping create a more just society. 

This lecture series, named after the grand challenge of "Harnessing Technology for Social Good" is designed to present innovative applications of technology powered by science in order to expand new opportunities and collaborations for reaching more people with greater impact on society's most vexing social problems.
