Transcript Social Work Celebrates 25 th Keith Hawkins and Mike Odell finish their lab work in Computer Engineering. Photo by Gary Sapone UH Only University in Texas to Offer Specialization Continues Community Initiatives and Academic Programs Celebrating their twenty- fifth anniversary, UH Graduate School of Social Work had several accomplishments to brag bout. The first class of master's degree candidates graduated in the spring of 1993 from the only program in the nation to offer an advanced concentration in political social work, said Karen Haynes, Dean of the school. This political social work program trains students in policy analysis, Haynes said. She added that the program also benefits students not naturally drawn to politics. "These students possess the necessary skills for working with groups where empowerment is really the issue," Haynes said. "They work with organizations serving people such as battered women, the disabled and neighborhood or tenant associations." The school also had the first group of doctoral students beginning their training in a social work Ph.D. program. What's next? "We'd like to attract more minority students to the master's program to increase the number of students with bilingual skills," Haynes said. To do that, according to the dean, the school needs more endowments for minority scholarships. UH's Graduate School of Social Work — and its Dean - are nationally known for community involvement and legislative advocacy. Haynes said that their minority goal only pertains to the master's level because half of the doctoral program already consists of minority students. Another goal for the school includes retaining more students to serve as educators for UH. The social work department, which is one of four programs in Texas, focused on its accomplishments and future goals during their twenty-fifth anniversary year. It expanded the reach of its Office of Community Projects, which has provided social work training for the employees of the Houston Parks and Recreation Department. School faculty also provided statewide social work training of frontline staff with the Children's Protective Services. In addition, the school established the Center for Organizational Research and Effectiveness, which will provide management consulting services to not- for-profit agencies, as well as the Center for Youth Services Training and Development, which helps prepare undergraduate students for careers with youth services agencies. The Social Work Learning Center was also initiated to enhance student internships. Anniversary celebrations began in mid-September. — Susan Spring Jiaren S.

A n e w 1 y created academic specialization within the UH College of Technology will enable students to obtain supervisory positions in the printing industry. This new course of study establishes the University of Houston as the only university or college in Texas offering a specialization in graphics communications technology supervision. The College of Technology added this specialization to its Occupational Technology and Industrial Studies program to respond to a need articulated by the Texas Printing Education Foundation and the Printing Industries of the Gulf Coast. "Printing is an exciting, dynamic and healthy industry in Texas," said Jerry Waite, assistant professor in the Department of Industrial Technology and specialization coordinator. "The College of Technology aspires to become the premiere center for Graphic Communications Technology education in the Southwest and to become one of the nation's leading schools in the preparation of leaders for the printing industry," Waite said. "We have a broad perspective of knowledge that can be utilized" — Thomas Arcy} Director of the Center for Applied Technology Career opportunities available to graduates in the specialization include printing supervisor/manager, graphic communications teacher and graphic communications salesperson/technical representative. Waite said UH's specialization will benefit from its location in a major metropolitan area with access to a large printing industry. The college plans to offer internships and cooperative programs enabling students to put into practice the supervisory techniques gained in the specialization. Also added to the college's slate last year, The Scientists Institute for Public Information started a pilot project in Houston and New York City called the Teacher Referral Service. UH technology, science and social sciences faculty were urged to fill out questionnaires to volunteer for the project. "In this case, teachers will be able to call an institute researcher to explain their science, health or technology questions," said Barbara Rich, senior vice president for the institute. "We have a broad perspective of knowledge that can be utilized," said Thomas Arcy, director of the College of Technology's Center for Applied Technology. "I'm sure faculty participation will be good." — Gina Trigilio I Fran Howell Busy Year for Technology College 6D Social Work/Technology 135
