ne by one, beginning in 1965, they graduated from what is now UWM’s Helen Bader School of Social Welfare. In the span of the next 50 years, 10,000 erstwhile students — nearly the capacity of UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena — became family therapists, FBI agents, school social workers, police chiefs, community advocates and more, providing Southeast Wisconsin with an unprecedented force of experts in criminal justice and social work. An estimated 75 percent of graduates remained in Wisconsin. Many became leaders in their fields. Meanwhile, our faculty grew strong ties with an increasing number of community partners, enabling our research to translate into evidence-based, practical programs that serve our community’s most vulnerable. There is no doubt that our school’s collective muscle has filled a gap for Wisconsin’s largest, most diverse city and for the region. Last year, 189 men and women graduated from the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare. Like prior generations, most likely will remain in Wisconsin and contribute to the state’s economy and citizens’ welfare. Tonight we grow our student scholarships and celebrate 50 years of working to improve the quality of life in the greater Milwaukee area. No doubt, Helen Bader would be immensely proud of what the school and its community supporters continue to accomplish. Thank you for joining us.

Event Program Dear Friends: Thank you for coming together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Helen Bader believed in reaching out to others, no matter where they are on life’s journey. From families in crisis to older adults with memory loss, her social work studies at UWM underscored that setbacks can affect any of us, but one person can make a difference, particularly for those who need it the most. Today, more than 25 years later, our family is pleased that the school that bears her name continues that generous spirit. Whether you are an alumni, student, faculty, or community supporter, you can take pride in knowing that the school touches all of us in Southeast Wisconsin in so many ways. Beyond the walls of Enderis Hall, you can see that impact every day in communities across the region. On behalf of all of us in the Bader family, thank you for your efforts to make our world a bit more compassionate, and a bit more just. We look forward to all the promise of the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare for the next 50 years. Sincerely,

One Person Can Make a Difference by Priscilla Pardini


pend a little time researching the life of Helen Daniels Bader and it quickly becomes clear that her life’s goals and accomplishments are deeply rooted in her middleclass upbringing in Aberdeen, South Dakota, during the Great Depression. Helping out at the drug store where her father, Lloyd Daniels, worked as a pharmacist, Helen took note when the Sioux Indians living on the outskirts of town lined up at the back door of the store seeking her father’s help — and the medicine he would provide them at little or no cost. It would prove to be an early lesson


in compassion and charitable giving that would define her life. When Helen enrolled at Milwaukee-Downer College in 1946, she was bucking a national trend. To be sure, just five years earlier in 1940, women had represented 41.3 percent of college graduates; however, that would soon change as large numbers of servicemen returning from World War II began filling college classrooms under the G.I. bill. By 1949, when Helen graduated with a degree in botany, the number of women in college had fallen dramatically, and by 1950 women accounted for only

23.9 percent of college grads, an all-time low. Instead of heading to college, women were being steered toward marriage and motherhood. Helen did marry and raise two sons. But once again, she defied the status quo, becoming a working mother when few married women considered such a move. She spent more than twenty years working alongside her husband, Alfred Bader, creating and running an enormously successful family business: the Aldrich Chemical

Company. And then, in her 50s, and no doubt sensing that her personal life was about to change dramatically, she turned heads again, returning to college to earn a Master of Social Work degree from UWM in 1980. By then, UWM’s School of Social Welfare, founded in 1965, had become renown for finding practical ways to apply social science theory to the most pressing problems of the day, which in the 1980s included family welfare, the criminal justice system, and aging. Helen’s coursework reinforced her passion to help the underserved members of the community, and gave her the skills she needed to put her beliefs into action. By the time the Baders divorced in 1981, Helen had embarked on a second career at the Milwaukee Jewish Home.

In 2001, the School was renamed after Helen Bader. Former Chancellor Nancy Zimpher, former Dean James Blackburn and Daniel Bader.


There — once more ahead of her time — she drew on her intuition, creativity, and compassion to design some of the first programs in the nation aimed at improving the lives of Alzheimer’s patients.

imberley Cy Motley is a trailblazer in the fight for social justice. At age 35, Motley became the first foreign lawyer working in Afghanistan when she signed on to a State Department legal education program in 2008. Today, she works in some of the world’s most corrupt courtrooms and prisons, a quest for justice and human rights that began in Milwaukee. Motley grew up in Milwaukee’s Berryland Housing Development and attended Whitefish Bay High School through Wisconsin’s Chapter 220 Program. She earned an associate’s degree at MATC, a bachelor’s and master’s degree in criminal justice from the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare, and a law degree at Marquette University — all within a span of six

Helen died of cancer in 1989, leaving her considerable fortune to the Helen Bader Foundation, which in 2001 granted UWM’s School of Social Welfare $5 million to endow a chair in applied gerontology. In response, the School was renamed the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare, a fitting tribute to a woman who so effectively used what she learned — first in her father’s drugstore in Aberdeen, and later at UWM — to improve the quality of life for some of southeastern Wisconsin’s most vulnerable citizens.

years — before starting her career as a Milwaukee public defender. “UWM faculty and staff were extremely encouraging,” Motley says. “My social welfare education made a difference. At UWM I learned how to research social issues and the importance of publishing.” Motley’s law practice includes pro-bono work for women and girls trapped in a criminal justice system that imprisons and even executes them for “moral crimes” including being raped. She has captured the attention of The New York Times, Vanity Fair, the BBC, and TedTalk producers. A documentary, “Motley’s Law,” premieres soon.

“So many Americans never have the opportunity to even pursue the American dream let alone realize and live it. That’s both unfortunate and unacceptable and for that reason I’ve chosen to be a social worker. To advocate not only for equality but for justice, for those voices that have been silenced.”

It’s less expensive to educate than to incarcerate. Creative Corrections Education Foundation is a 501(c) 3 organization based in Beaumont, Texas, that provides new opportunities for at-risk kids of incarcerated parents, as well as low income disadvantaged young adults, who otherwise are extremely likely to participate in criminal activities. By providing the possibility of a better future, including academics, financial, legal and social success, we are able to empower these young men and women to change their lives.

School Grows to Serve Milwaukee Community














C e le brating 50 Years L











In order to fulfill the urban mission of UW-Milwaukee, the School offered many of its regular curriculum courses during the afternoon and evening to accommodate not only part-time and full-time students, but also human service practitioners who wanted to further upgrade their skills.

50 Years

of Social Welfare

• In 1978, the School began preparing to offer a Master of Science in Criminal Justice, which was formally introduced in 1981; it was the only master’s level criminal justice program in the UW-System.

In the 1970s, the School began blending the scholarly and the practical.

Social Welfare Integrates into UW-Milwaukee The Helen Bader School of Social Welfare has deep roots, both in Milwaukee and throughout the state of Wisconsin. University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee archives

On July 1, 1965, the Regents established the School of Social Welfare as a major division of UW-Milwaukee. During the 1960s, the School introduced courses in criminal justice and home economics. The home economics program was subsequently dropped, but the criminal justice program grew rapidly.



1980s School Responds to Trends in the Field Faculty secured numerous research project grants in the 1980s. •

A three-year National Institute on Aging Research Grant “Environmental Influences on Nursing Home Residents” brought $240,000 to the University and the School.

Findings from this prestigious project were shared in a half-dozen articles in refereed journals including the Journal of Clinical Psychology, Health and Social Work and The Gerontologist.

• Also during the 1980s, the School established the Marriage and Family Therapy Certificate Program.

During the 1990s, the School developed international affiliations with the University of Bristol, England, and institutions in Costa Rica, Austria and South Africa.

Expanding the School’s Expertise


The School solidified its reputation as a center for excellence in addiction and behavioral health research and public child welfare. Highlights from the 1990s:

The Alzheimer’s Association, Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter congratulates the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare on its 50th anniversary. Thank you for your vision and on-going commitment to enhance care and support for persons impacted with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, while building capacity for future health care and social work professionals.

24/7 Helpline – 800.272.3900


The Alzheimer’s Association® is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research.

CABHR 1990-1991 The School established the Center for Behavioral Health Research after receiving two major federally funded grants: Project Match, a grant through the National Institute of Health that supports researchers studying possible means of matching persons with alcohol dependence with the most appropriate intervention program, and Project Decide, a grant focusing on the relationship between moral decisionmaking, family process, and adolescent use of alcohol and other drugs.


1990s Highlights from the 1990s (continued):

Child Welfare Training Program (1994) This program provides MSW-degree training to current and future employees of the Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare and its designated vendor agencies.

Alzheimer’s Lecture series (1994) The School partnered with the Bader Foundation to present an annual lecture on Alzheimer’s for the public and professionals. The lecture was titled, “Alzheimer’s Disease: Special Care Units in the 21st Century.”

Safe At Home (1995) The School received a five-year, $1.5 million grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP). Safe At Home explored strategies for curbing violence against women in Milwaukee.

Working in partnership with the Milwaukee Women’s Center, Sojourner Truth House, and Asha Family Services, the School’s Center for Addiction and Behavioral Health Research was responsible for the evaluation component.

During the 1990s, research flourished and Social Work and Criminal Justice expanded direct contacts with the community.

• The Hamilton Fish National Institute on School and Community Violence (1997) Professors Carl Pope and Rick Lovell were awarded funding to work with staff from seven other universities to study violence in schools and the relationship between violence in schools to violence in the community.

Under authorization by Congress to operate in a cooperative agreement with the federal office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Institute also served as a national clearinghouse of information on school and community violence.

Doctor of Philosophy in Social Welfare This program is designed to prepare students to become faculty members and/or researchers in social work or criminal justice.

2000s Gerontology Takes Center Stage

Tailored Programs and New Research

The mutually beneficial relationship between the School and the Helen Bader Foundation that began in 1994 culminated in a $5 million gift from the foundation. The grant established an endowed chair in applied gerontology and continues to fund age-related studies and initiatives. A $1 million scholarship to fund the development of a certificate on aging was also established at this time.


Highlights from the 2000s:


Endowed Chair in Applied Gerontology (2002 - present) Created by a grant from the Helen Bader Foundation, the applied chair generates programs and research projects in conjunction with campus and community initiatives.

One program is the League of Experienced Family Caregivers, a registry of family members who care for their spouses, parents, or other elderly relatives and who want to help other families by sharing information about their experiences as caregivers.

Another is the Graduate Certificate in Applied Gerontology, jointly offered by the School, the College of Letters and Science and the College of Nursing.

The School expands areas of study Concentrations solidified into Gerontology, Family and Child Welfare, and Behavioral and Physical Health. Also in 2002, Social Work and Criminal Justice became separate departments within the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare.

Tailored Programs and New Research


The Helen Bader School of Social Welfare has grown tremendously since its humble beginnings. It continues to garner research money and is highly regarded by the social welfare community in Milwaukee and beyond. Highlights from the 2010s: • The MSW program has grown into one of the largest master’s degree programs at UW-Milwaukee. • At any given time, the School has approximately 600 criminal justice undergraduates and is one of the largest majors on campus. • The Ph.D. in Social Welfare became a reality in 2011 when the first person graduated with this designation.


2010s Highlights from the 2010s (continued):

• Milwaukee High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA)(2010) The federal government designated Milwaukee as one of the 27 areas facing a significant drug trafficking problem. A $1 million federal grant links the School to federal efforts to reduce drug trafficking in the city and state. Through HIDTA, UW-Milwaukee criminal justice students have the opportunity to intern as crime analysts. • Institute for Urban Agriculture and Nutrition (2011) The institute fosters academic, community and civic collaborations focused on advancing urban agriculture and nutrition. IUAN is housed within the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare. • Crime Analysis program begins at UWM (2012) The School offers courses to address the fastest growing field in criminal justice by offering a certificate, minor and specialization in crime analysis. At the master’s level, Crime Analytics is a complete area of study. •

Professional Development (2012) A snapshot from 2012 shows that Professional Development offered 85 trainings to more than 800 participants. Popular courses cover topics from social worker burnout to conversations about end-of-life care.

Long a part of the School, Professional Development courses continue to offer quality programs on up-to-date topics of value to social workers and the wider community. 26

Stephanie Sikinger was one of the first people to specialize in crime analysis at UWM. Today, she works as a crime analyst for the Milwaukee Police Departments’s Intelligence Fusion Center.

• Youth Oriented Substance Abuse and Trauma Program (YOSAT)(2014) YOSAT, a three-year, $1.25 million grant from Health Resources and Services Administration, trains social work master’s students in trauma informed care and substance abuse counseling for children, adolescents and young adults. •

Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment for Substance Misuse (SBIRT)(2014) The SBIRT federal grant is aimed at enhancing how social work students, medical residents and nurse practitioners work with patients who are at risk for or experiencing substance abuse problems.

Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment for Substance Misuse is a brief intervention that practitioners deliver during a typical medical check-up.

In 2015, the Milwaukee Historical Society recognized the School’s contributions to the Milwaukee community over the past 50 years with the Anniversary Accolades award. 27
