Transcript New Programs Implemented The Graduate School ofSocialWorkimple- mented three new training and assistance programs, said Associate Dean Karen Holmes and Marsha Sanderson, director of the Office of Community Projects. One of the three new projects the college had taken on was a year-long training program for Children's Protective Services caseworkers. GSSW staff members Joan Richardson and Carol Harris wrote the curriculum, which was used to train 2,400 caseworkers statewide in three-day training sessions, Sanderson said. "Weareusingtheteam approach," Sanderson said. "There will be one faculty member and one CPS trainer to made sure we bridge the practical and theoretical (approaches)." Sanderson said she was also involved in a needs assessment study for Harris County's CPS. The study examined the need for a crisis shelter for children up to 12 years old and presented a model for how the shelter would be established and managed. Cooperating with Sanderson on this project was Les Karns and GSSW students. The school was continued a training program contracted by the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department for their personnel. The six-hour workshops covered subjects such as human growth and development, cultural diversity, communicationsskills,super- visoiy skills and working with groups, Sanderson said. The third of GSSW's new program was The Funding Source, a technical assistance program designed to notify human service agencies and help them apply for available funding, Sanderson said. -Deborah Hensel Karen Haynes Dean-Graduate School of Social Work Students Donate Time To Build Decks The College of Technology's students banded together to reconstruct their second of three decks between the faculty and student Technology buildings. The decks were built in 1977 with redwood and aluminum nails which had since been rotted by termites and water. The lower beams no longer supported the deck and were not attached to the main beams. The structures' boards were rotting, loose and missing in certain areas. When the Student Council of Technology first approached Dean of Technology Bernard Mclntyre, he commented that the falling deck was a liability waiting to happen. Steve Brindley, president of Students in Construction Related Industries (SCRI), said, "The hardest part was making those 60-degree cuts to retain the deck's original hexagon shape. Overall, the new deck would appear the same as the old one, except that it will look better." The effort was organized by the Student Council of Technology, which included the SCRI; the Students in Industrial Distribution Organization (SIDO); and the Institute of Electrical Electronic Engineering (IEEE). "We're doing this out of the goodness of our hearts to help the School (of Technology) overcome some of its budget crunch," Brindley said. "The College of Technology has given us so much that we want to give something back." Mike Beagel, a member of SCRI, said, "This gives us some good experience with working together and allows us to do something for the school." "I went out there when we finished the first deck and saw at least 10 already enjoying it," said Andy Ervin of SCRI. -Katherine Bui Students in the Graduate School of Social Work discuss classwork after the assignment was discussed in class.
