The Brown School's Professional Development Program
is designed to serve the needs of practicing social workers, clinicians, field instructors and human service professionals. We offer a wide range of short courses pertinent to clinical practice and social service management, as well as more in-depth opportunities like Summer Institute
and Inside the CEO
. Our program leads the professional community in its commitment to innovation, renewal of skills, and integration of new learning into daily practice.
Our new Clark-Fox Policy Institute
is dedicated to advancing social and economic justice locally and nationally by connecting evidence-based policy solutions to public awareness, practitioner training and policy decision-making. We look forward to bringing the St. Louis community and beyond compelling policy-related programming, news and events.
The Brown School is also affiliated with the Gephardt Institute for Public Service
. As Washington University’s nexus for service, the Gephardt Institute for Public Service promotes life-long civic engagement and sustained community impact. The Institute collaborates with schools and departments to offer a range of meaningful opportunities for community involvement to students, staff, faculty and alumni.
