Social Work Education: A Future Of Strength Or Peril

Julia M. Watkins, Dean Pierce

Abstract


In a dynamically changing world and one in which higher education generally is challenged by a scarcity of resources and the ever present need to justify the results of its mission and purpose, social work education faces an uncertain and perhaps perilous future. But rather than succumbing to pessimism, one should consider the strengths that social work education brings to the academy. The authors suggest the major challenges that face the social work educators in shaping a positive dynamic future within the academy.
