Former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis will be the guest speaker at a special Nov. 12 event to honor retiring Graduate School of Social Work Professor Demetrius Iatridis.

Dukakis’ talk, “Celebrating a Lifelong Commitment To Issues of Policy, Planning and Poverty,” which will be followed by a panel discussion, takes place at 4 p.m. in the Heights Room of Corcoran Commons.

Iatridis, a GSSW faculty member for 45 years, is an expert in social policy, social welfare and urban development issues, and social policy in Cuba and Eastern Europe. He has organized international conferences on the social policy implications of Eastern Europe's transition to market economy, and authored Social Policy: Institutional Context of Social Development and Human Services and Social Policy Planning: Theory and Practice.
