A Multi-University Economic Capability-Building Collaboration
Horwitz, Shelley; Briar-Lawson, Katharine
Journal of Social Work Education, v53 n1 p149-158 2017
To prepare students to work competently with financially at-risk individuals, families, and communities, social work schools need to bring economic literacy skills into the curriculum. This article describes an ambitious financial capability education initiative in New York City. It reports on a unique collaborative effort to develop, use, and evaluate online financial capability education among seven schools. Additionally, readiness and capacity for scaling up with upstate schools are explored, as their innovations in economic capacity building with special populations are cited.
