Criteria for the award: This award will be made to a graduating MSW student who, in the opinion of the faculty, best exemplifies the qualities of a social worker. Recipients of the Dean Catherine F. Alter Merit Award demonstrate outstanding performance in the classroom, as well as the ability to conceptualize, articulate and communicate knowledge.
