This year has brought new challenges to our work as social workers. Here at SSW we were so grateful to welcome students back to campus but, like so many of you, also struggled with the news from around the country and the world. We are all faced with balancing our hope and joy with the challenges of the world around us. As we look towards the end of 2022, I hope you are able to find moments for rest, joy and contemplation.
