In October the social workfsociology department re- ceived word from the Council for Social Work Education that the social work degree was fully accredited. This news followed several years of departmental prepara- tion aimed at improving the program quality for accredita- tion, said Dr. Rollo Tinkler, chairman of the department. Nationwide standards are set by the CWSE for faculty and curriculum before a program can be accredited. One of the major changes worked on during the years of preparation was integrating courses with one another in the curriculum, said Tinkler. Course syllabi also were updated by adding more recent readings to class requirements, he said. Also, the CWSE required at least three full-time faculty ,Wayne 354 f Sociology X 1 A--Lg "t xr ,. E' 3 members to be working in the department for one ye Tinkler said this requirement was met one year ago and vi in working force this year. The faculty members brought to the department a varic of expertise, he said. This expertise helped make the soc work curriculum a "total program," said Tinkler, and 0 that was praised by the accreditation reviewers. In completing the application for accreditation, t department only mentioned the minimal requirements, sa Tinkler. CSWE reviewers were "pleasantly surprised" to fir the program much stronger than the application led them believe, he said. Of the 10 programs the reviewer had set none were found to be stronger than ACU's progra: Tinkler said. The accreditation added several benefits, among them chance for those receiving a bachelor's degree from an a credited institution to receive a full year of credit from mc graduate schools of social work across the country, sa Tinkler. Substantial job benefits were available to graduad from accredited programs, said Tinkler, because mai federal and state social service agencies hired only those wl had graduated from accredited programs. The department added one new member to the facuI1 Terry Morris, who came to ACU from Lubbock. He hi been teaching at Texas Tech Medical School while in Lu bock. Morris taught introductory classes this year. His ar of specialization was in the learning disabilities of sm: children. Several faculty members received recognition beyond ti university scope. Coy Pullara, assistant professor, w selected as social worker of the year for this region of tl National Association of Social Workers. Paul Maiden, assi tant professor, was elected president of the local chapter I the NASW. Tinkler was chosen as a representative for tl Texas Council on Family Relations, In April, the department sponsored a workshop for pr fessionals from the region. jim Englebrecth spoke abo resistive clients - those who resist treatment. When aski how the department fit into the Christian role of ACI Tinkler said they were "at the heart of it" because of the co cern with social problems. Students were trained to col with the problems in society and work through them rath than complaining about them, he said. The department c fered constructive solutions to today's problems, Tinkl said. - Tammy Dahlof i
