Can you elaborate on the spaces where Brown School Alumni are working currently?
Andrea
39:31
Where are popular places to do a practicum if I plan to focus on geriatric social work and is the practicum full time?
Daiszha Cooley
43:05
Is there a list of all the organizations that the Brown School partners with in the community? If yes, does it include the focus of those organizations?
Vivian Garcia Talamantes
44:28
What suggestions would you give as far as maintaining an asset-based mindset vs a need-based one, and practicing from that ideology while in STL? Also, any insight as to how to learn more about the city & its communities as someone who is not from the Midwest, especially in a way that is respectful and non-intrusive/assuming?
Mar
46:30
Similar to Vivian’s question, how has the STL community responded to folks who are not from area leading these organizations? Being a person from a city that has experienced a lot of gentrification, I want to keep that in mind
Brianna Coppersmith
