Congratulations to Claudia J. Coulton, PhD, Lillian F. Harris Professor of Urban Research & Social Change and Distinguished University Professor, on her induction into the 2017 class of Fellows of the Society for Social Work and Research (SSWR). She is honored for advancing the social work profession with distinction and for promoting a diverse, equitable and just society.

Dr. Coulton also co-founded and co-directs the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development at the Mandel School, and she is on the Executive Committee of the Grand Challenges for Social Work.

Dr. Coulton joins her Mandel School colleagues Dr. David Biegel and Dr. Elizabeth Tracy as a SSWR Fellow. She is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare.

SSWR Fellows are members who have served with distinction to advance the mission of the Society — to advance, disseminate, and translate research that addresses issues of social work practice and policy and promotes a diverse, equitable and just society. This honor recognizes their individual accomplishments, leadership and contribution to social work research and acknowledges their roles as role models and mentors for individuals pursuing careers in social work research. Eligibility is determined by a point system that awards points for activities in a given year, such as accepted abstracts. They will be inducted at the 2017 SSWR Annual Conference in New Orleans on January 11-14.
