Alabama - Mississippi Social Work Education Conference
From 1969 to 1971, social work faculty from the southern states met four times a year as part of a faculty development project of the Southern Regional Education Board. When the project ended, faculty from Alabama and Mississippi decided to form a conference so they could further the bonds they had developed.
