Hunter College is pleased to partner with the Manhattan DA’s Office adding to our already extensive engagement with the East Harlem community. With funding from them Hunter will play a key role in this important community based initiative by planning and developing the Community Navigator Program at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded the 2017 Adoption Excellence Award to Dr. Gerald P. Mallon – the Julia Lathrop Professor of Child Welfare and Associate Dean for Scholarship and Research at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College.
Last Thursday, the Silberman School of Social Work proudly welcomed Hunter College sophomores and juniors in the Macaulay Honors College and Hunter Honors Scholars cohorts to its East Harlem campus, as part of an exciting inter-disciplinary event.

The Silberman School of Social Work warmly congratulates our colleague Leora Shudofsky, who has received a Hunter College Presidential Award for Excellence – The Cecile B. Insdorf Award for Excellence in Teaching for Part-Time Faculty.
Leora has been a valued member of the Hunter College social work community for nearly a decade, as the Co-Director of PROVE: Project for Return and Opportunity in Veteran’s Education and a part-time faculty member.
Carrying on the Silberman School of Social Work’s tradition of cross-cultural engagement, second-year Clinical Practice MSW student Heather Armijo has received the Fulbright English Teaching Award to teach college-level English in Colombia. A hallmark of the Fulbright Foundation’s travel scholarship portfolio, this prestigious award places Americans in school settings around the world, where they help teach English and facilitate cultural exchange.
For Heather, the award presents a unique chance to strengthen her capacity as a globally engaged social worker.
