The Tennessee State University Social Work Program participates in the Social Day on the Hill annually. Social Work Day on the Hill is an annual event that is sponsored by the National Association of Social Workers. Practitioners, educators and students from all over the state come together at Legislative Plaza to discuss the policy responses to the issues that impact our profession and clients we serve. In additional to presenting, knowledgeable speakers and legislators, the event serves as a call to action and is a unifying experience that links the practice community to social welfare policy.
