The Center for Social Work Research seeks to nurture long-term relationships with Detroit area social service organizations. Our goal is to develop and evaluate best practices in social work interventions. This project focuses on a few large agencies to build a multi-faceted, collaborative relationship. These partnerships increase the ability for faculty and students to engage in applied research and the ability for community partners to test new program models and evaluation strategies. Collaboration between faculty and practitioners is an important component with our partner projects.
The type of collaboration provided through partner projects varies with each partner depending on their need and capacity, and our ability to match faculty interests. These partnerships will create an ongoing interactive exchange of information and sharing of resources for the purposes of organizational support, conducting major research, and seeking external funding with the aim of developing and evaluating best practices in social interventions.
More information about our strategic partners coming soon.
