The College of Social Work recently announced that instructor Candice Morgan, Ph.D., MSW, LMSW, will be the new Greenville Master of Social Work site coordinator, beginning August 15. Morgan will succeed Michelle Scott, MSW, LISW-CP(S), who has taught at the Greenville site since 2011 and been site coordinator since 2016. Scott will serve as lecturer and coordinator of the new Human Services program at Lander University but will continue to teach as an adjunct instructor at the Greenville site.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the students and developing relationships with them,” Morgan says. “I have an open-door, or in this case, an open-virtual space policy and hope students will reach out to me often.”
Morgan has taught classes at the College of Social Work since 2011. She has also served as a field instructor to supervise and evaluate students in their field placements, and taught summer classes in the College of Social Work’s MSW Korean program. In her new position, Morgan will coordinate daily operations, advise all students, meet with prospective students in the area, and teach selected courses. The Greenville MSW site is one of three locations for the college’s Part-time graduate program.
“My focus is on providing support and leadership for students and faculty at the Greenville MSW site to ensure the continued high standards and excellence in the classroom and in field,” Morgan says. “For the long haul, I’d love to see the program grow. Recruitment, retention and community engagement are on my list of goals as well.
Fortunately, I’ve already had the pleasure of meeting several of our Greenville MSW students who are in my summer classes. Greenville MSW students are highly engaged, conscientious, and passionate about social work. They possess all the qualities I’m looking for in future social workers.”
Morgan received her MSW from the Loyola University School of Social Work. She later earned her Ph.D., with a concentration in community engaged practices, from the College of Social Work in 2016.
