Department of Social Work:

The vision of the Department of Social Work is to lead the advancement of integrating Christian faith with social work practice, scholarship, and service locally, nationally, and internationally. Our department has 12 faculty members across our BSW and MSW program.  The BSW program has collaborated with Testing and Training International, located in Brooklyn New York, to bring an exciting and innovative 18-month, lockstep degree-completion program to the Orthodox Jewish Community. This new program has both New York State Education and Middle States approvals. Cohort number one was successfully launched in February 2017.  We are planning on launching cohorts two and three in August 2017, contingent upon meeting cohort enrollment expectations.

Candidates must have at least two years post-M.S.W. social work practice experience. Experience using distance education technology is a plus.  This comes with a ten and a half month contract.

Responsibilities:

Be the lead professor in serving the needs of 10-20 students in a non-traditional, degree completion program with Orthodox Jewish Students; provide for their academic advisement; serve as field liaison; serve on Department and College committees and maintain a record of scholarship and professional activity.
