The 10-member Department of Social Work Community Advisory Board meets at least once each semester for a two-hour meeting on campus with the department chair and other faculty. The board consists of community social workers who are diverse in terms of race, gender, national origin, declared sexual orientation, area of practice specialization, and type of social service agency. Some Advisory Board members are also alumni of our department, and most of them work for local and regional social service agencies that employ our graduating students. Board members provide ongoing feedback to the department concerning perceived strengths and concerns related to the BSW and MSW programs. Advisory Board members frequently make recommendations concerning such matters. They also provide valuable feedback concerning how recent department graduates are doing in their employment, and how current students are performing in their field practicum placements.
