1983 marks the 75th anniversary of the incorporation of the Chicago School of Civics and Philanthropy, the direct predecessor of the School of Social Service Administration, by the University of Chicago. The School of Civics and Philanthropy marked both a response to the demands for progressive social reform and an institutional commitment to the ideal of professional social work education. The founders of the Chicago School set a high standard for their successors as they created a far-reaching social service research and training program within the formal setting of an academic curriculum. This anniversary exhibit celebrates these pioneering achievements and the continuing distinction of a Chicago institution which continues to make a global impact of the field of social welfare. The exhibit draws together archival materials including financial and academic records and archival photographs to tell the story of the development of the School and its role in the development of professional training for Social workers.
