Biographical Note

Bernece Kern Simon, social worker, social work educator and administrator, served on the faculty of the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration from 1944 to 1979.

Simon received a bachelor's degree in sociology from the University of Chicago, as well as master's degree from the School of Social Service Administration. Early in her career, she worked at the Jewish Children's Bureau, then at the University of Chicago Hospitals and Clinics. She joined the faculty of SSA in 1944, working as an instructor in the classroom and the field.

In the 1960s-1970s, Simon served in a variety of administrative positions in SSA, chairing the generalist sequence, directing the field instruction program, and chairing the casework sequence. Following her formal retirement in 1979, she continued to teach in the school's doctoral program. In 1975, she was named Samuel Deutsch Professor, in honor of her scholarship and service to the university. Simon also served on university administrative committees, including the Council of the University Senate.

Simon also took on leadership roles in professional organizations: She served on the Board of Directors of the Council for Social Work Education, national committees of the National Association of Social Workers, and editorial boards for Social Work and the Encyclopedia of Social Work. The National Association of Social Workers honored Simon as a Social Work Pioneer.
