INNOVATION MATTERS - 2018

 

A MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN

The social work profession is at an exciting point in our history.  Technological innovations as well as our nationally changing demographics have ushered in new challenges for the profession. The CSW is in the process of understanding what new technology means for the profession and how we can adapt our social work education programs  to include more high-tech ways of teaching our students and interacting with our clients.  We are excited to share the innovative and inspiring ways our students, staff, and faculty are preparing to better meet the needs of the future.

— Martell Teasley, PhD, MSW
