DENVER—The University of Denver Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW) is pleased to announce that Dean and Milton Morris Endowed Chair James Herbert Williams has been elected to a three-year term as president of the Board of the National Association of Deans and Directors of Schools of Social Work (NADD).
The election took place at the NADD annual spring conference held in Laguna Beach, Calif., in April.
