Overview

This book covers the full 100-year history of one of the premier schools of social work in the country -- a professional school on the cutting edge of pedagogy and practice. By utilizing the perspectives of present and former faculty members who have been deeply involved in developing the CUSSW's exemplary curriculum, this book provides the most up-to-date, comprehensive examination of the school's historical evolution, current practice methods, and fields of special practice. The book begins with a historical overview of the school which includes a discussion of how the first curriculum was "invented," its later development into the two-year curriculum that serves as a standard for social work education today, and the significant societal changes that helped to shape the school throughout the years. Additional chapters address issues that face the school and all of social work presently and outlines the projected role of the school at the dawn of the twenty-first century.
