Program Administration and Curriculum Development (PACD) Committee, Dean May, Chair

The Program Administration and Curriculum Development (PACD) Committee met during the CSWE Annual Program Meeting in Nasville, TN. The committee continues to monitor the evolution and dialogue associated with EPAS. Paul Dovyak has been instrumental in this process. Butch Rodenhiser recently consulted with Marshall Smith in order to post a summary of Paul's findings on the BPD Listserve. The committee will continue to monitor developments associated with EPAS. The Baccalaureate Educational Assessment Project (BEAP) is funded through the PACD committee. Butch Rodenhiser reports that BEAP continues to grow. Marshall Smith has recently hired a student to assist him with the computer analyses associated with BEAP. The PACD Committee is also active in promoting facutly development institutes associated with BPD. Esther Langston reports that the committee is piggybacking faculty development institute initiatives with the Hartford Foundation's efforts to promote gerontology in social work education. Recent faculty development institutes have taken place in Denver at the BPD Conference and at Virginian Commonwealth University. There will be an additional institute in Seattle in June as well as another institute at VCU. The commitee continues to work on an external review of the Journal of Baccalaureate Social Work. Two committee members, Christine Boone and Cordelia Kirk are serving as readers. Cordelia is utilizing one of her graduate students to serve as a third reader. Data collected from this process will be given to the Research Committee for analysis and interpretation. Dean May recently completed his work with the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) in an effort to get the JBSW listed in the Social Science Citation Index. During its meeting, the committee also discussed the evaluation of BPD Conference abstracts and BPD Board sponsored sessions related to program administration and curriculum development.
