Social Work Department Hosts Re-Entry Simulations

The Department of Social Work in partnership with the United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Alabama hosted this semester's first Re-Entry Simulations.

""The Department of Social Work in partnership with the United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Alabama hosted this semester's first Re-Entry Simulations. This large-scale simulation is designed to highlight unnecessary barriers to successful reentry to society following incarceration. Participants assumed new identities as well as new personal factors that applied to them as ex-offenders returning to the community. They had to meet the strict life requirements that actual returning ex-offenders would have to meet or risk going back to jail.

A second simulation will be held on October 27 from 12:45 to 3:00 p.m. at the UAB Recreation Center, Center Court.

Interested in participating? Students can sign up to attend. Interested in volunteering? You can sign up to play the role of service providers during the simulation.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Dr. Laurel Hitchcock (lihitch@uab.edu) or Dr. Stacy Moak (stacym@uab.edu)
