Abstract


In this invited article, the authors review the history and development of
the Indiana University School of Social Work from its origin in 1911 as a small
department to its current status as a large organization offering educational programs
to nearly 900 students on five campuses. One of the nation’s oldest, it is the
only school to offer the full continuum of social work education from the associate
through the doctoral levels. In many respects, the evolution of the School mirrors the
experiences of other schools and departments of social work.As such, the article may
be enlightening to those interested in the history of social work education in this
country.
