Social Work senior class presents ‘ALICE’ results to United Way

Culminating a year-long research project, the Bachelor of Social Work senior class gave a presentation to the United Way on Thursday, March 14, 2019 in the Christie Theater. Annually, seniors in the Social Work Program take on a collaborative research project with a community partner. This year, the students worked with United Way to learn more about UW-Green Bay students who identify as ALICE, which stands for: asset limited, income constrained, employed. The social work students used a photovoice methodology, which means that research participants took photos to express what it means to them to have limited incomes while also balancing the expectations of being a college student. Brown County United Way intends to replicate the research project on a county-wide scale, and was eager to learn more about both findings and methodology. See more.
