Social Work Associate Professor Dr. Amy Chanmugam will be part of the 2017 class of Fellows of the Society for Social Work Research (SSWR). Fellows are members who have served with distinction to advance the mission of the Society, which are to advance, disseminate, and translate research that addresses issues of social work practice and policy and to promote a diverse and equitable society.
The SSWR Fellowship has been established by the Society to honor and to recognize current SSWR members for their individual accomplishments, leadership and contribution to SSWR as a scientific society. As a fellow, Chanmugam will serve as a role model and mentor for individuals pursuing careers in social work research. The SSWR will officially announce Chanmugam's distinction at its annual conference in New Orleans in January.
