2002 Affirmative Action Award

The University-Community Career Development Partnership (UCCDP) project, administered through Pitt’s School of Social Work, has received the 2002 Chancellor’s Affirmative Action Award. The project helps participants to bridge the gap from welfare to employment. Since UCCDP’s founding in 1991, the project’s graduates (nearly all minority women) have been hired in at least 15 Pitt or UPMC departments. Accepting the award at the June 10 Senate Council meeting were, from left: John M. Wilds, co-director of UCCDP’s advisory board; project director Crystal McCormick Ware; Mary Hall Page, professor emerita of social work and UCCDP co-founder, and social work Dean Larry Davis. The award included $2,500 to support the project’s work.
