The School of Social Work is seeking a full-time Clinical Lecturer for January 2014.
The Texas State Board of Social Worker Examiners will meet on our campus in early December. This is an honor for our School, and I truly hope we can make this an opportunity for both faculty and students to see how the Board functions and how professional regulation works.
Meetings will take place in Room 3-14.1 of the LBJ Student Center. The Texas State School of Social Work is host to the Board on this occasion, please consider attending!!

The School of Social Work
Social work has been a part of Texas State's curriculum since the Department of Sociology first offered a social work course in 1975. Initially, social work was a curriculum sequence in the sociology major, but it later became an academic minor, and finally an academic major. The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) was first accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) in 1978, an accreditation that was reaffirmed in 1985, 1992, 2000, and 2004. The Department of Social Work was organized in 1995 and joined the College of Health Professions. It was designated a School in 2001.
The School of Social Work at Texas State University has been selected by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) to partner with the association in developing a curriculum known as the ASWB Path to Licensure Campaign.
Dr. Anne Deepak is attending a White house briefing for social work educators this week, Addressing the Social Determinants of Health in a New Era: The Role of Social Work Education. She received the invitation via her role as a recent appointee to the Women's Council of CSWE.
