NOVEMBER 29, 2012

After coming of age in a crucible of war and destruction, Demetrius Iatridis has spent his adult life seeking to foster a world built on cooperation and compassion for those in need.

Iatridis will retire next month after 46 years as a faculty member in the Graduate School of Social Work, with a reputation as an esteemed researcher and teacher in social policy and social welfare. He’s also been hailed as a pioneer in bringing an international context to social work, particularly for his study of former communist nations’ efforts to build social services systems in a market economy.

GSSW faculty, staff and alumni, as well as special guests, honored Iatridis on November 12 in the Heights Room of Corcoran Commons. The event featured a keynote speech from former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis and a panel discussion.
