- Wednesday, July 24th, 2019
The WKU College of Health and Human Services is pleased to announce the development of the Center for Child Welfare Education and Research (CCWEAR).
The Department of Social Work has been a close partner with the state’s child welfare agency, the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services’ Department for Community Based Services (DCBS), for over 20 years. WKU’s ongoing partnership involves the professional education and training of the Cabinet’s child welfare workforce through the Training Resource Center, the MSW Stipend Program, the Public Child Welfare Certification Program, and the Credit for Learning initiative. These ongoing initiatives are focused on child welfare practice, training, and workforce development and are making a difference within the Commonwealth and affording WKU students with opportunities for development in a professional career.
