Social WorkfSociology Student visit nationis capital i Sixteen students in the social work epartment went to Washington, D.C., uring spring break. Paul Maiden, assis- int professor of social work, proposed and romoted the trip. Maiden, faculty sponsor of the Social Vork Club, said that when the club was lanning activities he tried to think of something different? Maiden had worked in Washington for ie Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Ser- ices before coming to ACU. He spent ap- roximately one year with each agency, nd his experiences in Washington during nat time gave him the idea for the trip, he aid. "I thought it would be interesting to how the students the political process in ction. I wanted them to get some idea of 'his page: left - In Field II, senior Karen ollier and senior Rand E.

During the week in Washington the students attended a conference sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services. The topic dealt with how local agencies are affected by federal agency regulation and President Reagan's new federalism. They also attended sessions of the House of Representatives and the Senate, and toured the White House, the FBI building and many of the capital's monuments. Maiden said U.S. Rep. Charles Stenholm arranged a number of the group's activities, including the White House tour and attendance at the House session. Sen. John Tower secured passes for the group's attendance at the Senate session, Maiden said. Students from the social work depart- ment also were involved in projects closer to home. Seven students enrolled in the Social Work Practice 1 class screened needy families in the Abilene area for the Goodfellows, annual Christmas project. The students worked in pairs, visiting families whose names had been sent to Goodfellows and compiling reports about the families. Each pair interviewed 12-16 Abilene families, using a set of guidelines so that the information they gathered would be uniform. Goodfellows gave toys, clothing and food to needy families in the Abilene area. The donations they received to fund the annual project restricted the number of families they could assist, so the screening by social work students made sure the most needy families were served. Bill Culp, associate professor and teacher of the class, said ACU became in- volved in the program three years ago when the Volunteer Clearing House called him. Practice 1, a junior level class, provided many students with their first "hands oni' experience in social work, Culp said. "Most of the students make their first ac- tual contacts with families and agencies in the community through the Practice 1 class," he said. Students in 'Social Work Practice 1 assisted other agencies, including Big Brothersf Big Sisters, the West Texas Rehabilitation Center and Abilene State School, Culp said. The department also continued to seek accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education. In the fall, the council notified Culp, who also was program direc- tor of the department, that a two-member team would come to ACU during the spring semester to do an in-depth research of the department. Accreditation by the council would allow ACU social work graduates to delete 30 hours from a 60-hour master's degree program in schools with advanced standing. Social Workf Sociology 187
