Nicki Sanders, MSW, School of Social Work Guest Lecturer


As an anxious high school senior, I contemplated whether to become a teacher or a social worker – the only two professional careers I though were available to me.  A community service project was the determining factor in pursuing social work.  My career has allowed me to pursue and merge social work and teaching in various ways.

Nicki Sanders is an experienced professional with two decades of work experience that includes social service, education, community outreach, and training.

  • I am an undergraduate and graduate first-generation college student who understands the challenges of being a nontraditional college student.
  • I am an experienced manager and supervisor of undergraduate and graduate interns, new professionals, and seasoned professionals.
  • I possess knowledge of current research and best practices on employee recruitment, retention, and engagement, workforce development, and leadership development.
  • I am a Career Coach and college professor skilled in strategic planning and career advancement.

Nicki Sanders is a lover of Social Work.

  • I received my Master of Social Work degree from University of Maryland School of Social Work with a concentration in Management and Community Organization and a specialization in Social Action and Community Development.
  • I have initiated and managed relationships between the public and private sectors.
  • I have co-sponsored a community awareness campaign focused on teen in foster care for over a decade.

In addition to the traditional social work skills of self-awareness, empathy, boundary setting, active listening, objectivity, advocacy, and conflict resolution, I also equip my students and interns with the knowledge and skills to succeed in college and after graduation.  I am continuing my careers in Social Work and Education as a Guest Lecturer in Schools of Social Work throughout the United States of America. Lecture topics for both graduate and undergraduate social work courses include:
