Khinduka, Shanti K.
This document presents a general review and evaluation of social work education in Florida throughout the state university system. Programs are reviewed from these institutions: Florida State University, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, University of South Florida, Florida Atlantic University, University of West Florida, University of Central Florida, and Florida International University. The social work programs are evaluated in terms of these criteria: (1) the clarity of their objectives and the consonance of the objectives with institutional missions; (2) the administrative organization and the leadership of the program; (3) the class and field curriculum; (4) the composition and caliber of the faculty; (5) the quality and mix of students; (6) the program's responsiveness to issues of equity and relevance with regard to ethnic minorities and women; and (7) the adequacy of the physical, financial, and faculty resources. Suggestions and recommendations are made to encourage and assist the programs in their efforts to enhance the effectiveness of their programs. The first section of the document describes the context of social work education in Florida, discusses its achievements and the issues surrounding it, and provides recommendations. The second section provides an assessment and recommendations for each of the seven Florida universities. (ABL)
