Join us Friday, June 2, 2023 to celebrate the UT Center for Veterinary Social Work (CVSW). The CVSW is the culmination of a thirty-seven-year relationship between the Colleges of Social Work and Veterinary Medicine at the University of Tennessee. This new interdisciplinary center is dedicated to research, education, and service in the inter-professional space of veterinary social work, which is a One Health human-animal interactions model. Veterinary social work focuses on problems and opportunities in four overlapping areas: the link between human and animal violence, animal-assisted interactions, grief and bereavement, and intentional wellbeing.

The celebration kickoff will be a hybrid in-person/virtual event with attendees from all over the world. The in-person portion of the celebration will be held in the Ann and John Tickle Lecture Hall at the veterinary college’s Teaching and Learning Center located at 2407 River Drive, Knoxville, TN. The program will include in-person and virtual tours of the College of Veterinary Medicine, the history of our partnership, highlights of the Center’s educational, research, and service strategic goals and accomplishments, as well as opportunities for attendees to learn how to get involved in the Center’s vision.
