Faculty Research to Practice Initiative

A great deal of exciting and innovative research goes on at the College of Social Work. Faculty disseminate their findings through journal articles, books, reports, and conferences. However, due to multiple responsibilities and time demands, practitioners often struggle to find time to read these findings and incorporate new knowledge into their practice.

The Faculty Research to Practice Initiative offers faculty research findings to practitioners in quick, easy to read slides shows. These slide shows are organized into the practice areas below so practitioners can more easily find content that is of interest. Our hope is that practitioners can use COSW research activities to inform their practice by reviewing these slides, and then can read complete articles or contact our faulty when they find something of deep relevance to their practice. This initiative is another way the College works to be community engaged and community relevant.
