Mandel School’s Nancy Rolock named to nonprofit board of directors, elected fellow of Society for Social Work and Research

Nancy Rolock, the Henry L. Zucker Professor in Social Work Practice at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at Case Western Reserve University, was appointed to the board of directors for nonprofit Kinnect.

Kinnect is an Ohio-based nonprofit dedicated to ensuring permanent families for all children in the shortest time possible and connecting those families with individualized support to meet their unique needs. “At Kinnect, I hope to bring the perspective of thinking about long-term child wellbeing,” said Rolock. “One of the things I love is the primacy of listening to families and honoring what they want in their lives.”

Rolock also was recently elected as a fellow of the Society for Social Work and Research (SSWR), which honors and recognizes current members for their individual accomplishments, leadership, and contribution to SSWR as a scientific society.
