Faculty Update: Part 2!

Congratulations Prof. Udolph!

In addition to serving as a delegate for NASW, Prof. Udolph has been elected by her colleagues to the Association of Baccalaureate Social Work Program Directors (BPD) of Directors as a Member-at-Large.

BPD's website describes the professional organization as an, "... individual membership association, that since 1975 has represented the interests of undergraduate education and practice in social work." With around 800 members around the country, BPD's members have been, "a driving force in the development of generalist practice as the professional foundation for social work.

In talking about her election, Prof. Udolph said, "It's really important that small programs have a strong voice. Our needs and resources are often very different than larger state schools." And AU now has that voice in a national organization dedicated to developing undergraduate education. Professor Udolph will serve a three-year term and will attend her first board meeting in October.
Congratulations again!
