2019 Hokenstad International Lecture

This lecture series was launched in 2007 through an endowment from M. C. “Terry” Hokenstad, a former president and long-time member of CSWE. The lecture is always given during the CSWE Annual Program Meeting. The program serves to enhance and complement the work of the Katherine A. Kendall Institute for International Social Work Education (Kendall Institute) as well as CSWE's Commission on Global Social Work Education. 

This year, the Hokenstad Lecturer was Dr. Annamaria Campanini from the Università Milano Bicocca and President of the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW). Both her research and her professional activities show evidence of deep interest and expertise in social work education at the international level. Dr. Campanini's lecture, “International organizations: Building capacity and representing social work education globally,” reflected the APM theme of “Looking Back, Looking Forward,” including a brief historical review, and emphasis on current and future issues and priorities for strengthening social work education and ensuring the voice of social work is heard internationally.
