Unit Introduction and What You Will Learn

Hello and welcome to SOWK 430! I’m excited to have this class with all of you. This week is pretty light and focused on helping everybody get acclimated to the course and the format I use. The objectives for week one include:

  • Become acquainted with the course website, requirements, and syllabus
  • Introduce ourselves to each other
  • Start to learn about the history of social work

Unit Assignments


A–01: Asynchronous Participation and Engagement

Four discussion forums are available for students for week one of SOWK 430. This week are to make at least one reply in the Charitable Volunteers to Architects of Social Welfare Discussion, post on the Flip video discussion app Introductions all Around (Flip Video Post), and submit a comment Acknowledging Participation Guidelines. Optionally students may submit Questions About the Syllabus.

You are always more than welcome to email me at campbell_j@heritage.edu or call/text (509) 392-1056. I try to be as responsive as possible.
