Professor Chris Petr appointed co-chair of the Task Force on 2013 GADE Quality Guideline

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Group for the Advancement of Doctoral Education (GADE) produces the document titled "Guidelines for Quality in Social Work Doctoral Programs." This document outlines the recommended requirements for doctoral programs in social work and social welfare. It was prepared to assist faculty and academic administrators in reviewing and designing doctoral programs in social work. 
The new chair elect of GADE, Kia Bentley, released the following statement to GADE members on January 11, 2012. 
"The consensus among our members and our colleagues in other social work organizations is that GADE should continue to be about quality in doctoral education. One key mechanism for the expression of that is the publication of our GADE Guidelines for Quality in Doctoral Education. However these are now almost ten years old. I am pleased to share with you that I have taken the liberty in my role as Chair-elect of appointing Chris Petr (Kansas) and Donna Harrington (Maryland) as co-chairs of a new Task Force on 2013 GADE Quality Guideline. I am thrilled that scholars and teachers of this caliber have enthusiastically agreed to take on this important task.   Later this Spring, they will be soliciting volunteers for a small, select group of GADE members to examine the current Guidelines and propose revisions ready for final approval at the GADE 2013 conference here in Richmond. That gives them a year to complete their work. They will design and implement an inclusive process that finds ways to honor our colleagues work that came before and yet brings a fresh, forward-looking perspective to the meaning of quality in doctoral education."
