FSU Social Work Students Partner with County United Way

Frostburg State University undergraduate social work students have been partnering for the last year with County United Way on two community service-learning projects.

Last semester, students in the Generalist Practice II class taught by Dr. Kathleen Powell worked with students from the Social Work and Sociology Basic Research Methods classes taught by Dr. Terry Russell to conduct a telephone survey of residents of Allegany and Mineral counties. The survey was part of a community needs assessment project coordinated by County United Way. Survey results, which are being compiled now, will help the United Way and its member agencies to ascertain the concerns of area residents related to health and human services.

This spring, students from the Generalist Practice II class are conducting interviews with persons who have received services through United Way member agencies. The information gleaned from the interviews will be incorporated into the agency's promotional materials and will assist in educating community members about the ways in which their contributions to the United Way support local residents.

For more information on the projects, contact Harry King, Executive Director of the County United Way at (301) 722-2700, or Kathleen Powell, FSU Associate Professor of Social Work at (301) 687-4695.
