Whitney M. Young Jr School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University

The November edition of CAU Now-Lifting Every Voice on WCLK featured Dr. Jenny L. Jones, Dean of the Whitney M. Young, Jr. School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University. We discussed the undergraduate, graduate and doctorate levels of the program, current collaborations and student engagement initiatives, and the school's upcoming 2020 Centennial. We also talked about Whitney M. Young, Jr., who was a nationally known civil rights activist and academic who was the first Dean of the school that now bears his name at CAU.

WCLK would like to wish all of our listeners a happy holiday season. But for many people, this time of year is marked by a major case of the holiday blues. Join us Saturday morning December 31 at 7:30 for Dr. Judi The People’s Advocate as we talk about it. Judi Crocker Billingsley is joined by Dr. Joi G. Showell from the Whitney M. Young, Jr. School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University. They’ll offer you strategies to cope if you suffer from depression and anxieties around the holidays. That’s Dr.

On the Saturday,  May 14, 7:00 a.m. edition of The Local Take on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I speak with Dean Dorcas Bowles from the Whitney M. Young, Jr. School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University and CAU Alumna Atasha Murray.  Murray received her  Master of Social Work (MSW) degree under the leadership of Dr. Bowles.   Bowles helped her obtain a scholarship when she was on the verge of having to quit her degree for financial reasons. Her desire to provide the same opportunities to current students caused Atasha Murray to reach out to Dean Bowles when she received a life changing opportunity.
