Adele Falk

My name is Adele Falk. I recently completed my master’s of social work at the University of Kansas in Overland Park.

Music was important to me in high school so that’s what I studied in college. I was trained as an opera singer as an undergraduate, but I realized I didn’t want to make it a career.

I started volunteering at the Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault, or MOCSA, the rape crisis center in Kansas City. Eventually I decided I wanted to work in victim services. Therefore, I needed a degree in a related field, which meant a social work graduate degree.

One main reason I chose KU in Overland Park is the faculty and staff are so accommodating. I have mild autism, and it’s important for me to go to a school where I’ll find support if I need it. Student Services and my professors helped me meet my academic goals. Even though all schools are supposed to do that, it doesn’t mean they all do.

I also chose KU’s master’s program because the administration and advocacy concentration offers classes in topics like public policy and community organizing – for what I want to do.

I would love to get a job in public policy, advocating for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence so I can work with legislators to change legislation. That is my passion, and my degree from KU in Overland Park will help me stand out among the rest and make a difference.
