Welcome to TATE Talks!
Tate Talks are inspired by John A. Tate, Jr., whose name the building that houses the UNC School of Social Work bears. As he was called by his friends, “Jack” was dedicated to thinking BIG. A banker by trade, he constantly sought new perspectives on social and health problems. At times audacious and always passionate, he was an articulate advocate for social change. He was effective as a public speaker, a fund raiser, and a backroom politician.
Tate Talks are designed to feature emerging ideas and concepts in social work and social welfare. Speakers are selected because they are on the cutting edge in their fields and are pressing the boundaries of knowledge through their scholarship and research.
