New website shares SWEEP collaboration

The College of Applied Sciences and Arts Social Work Education Enhancement Program launched a new website last week to keep visitors informed about past and upcoming activities of the collaborative.

Alice Hines, the interim dean for the college of Applied Sciences and Arts and director of the Social Work Education Enhancement Program, announced the launch of the website via email on Sept. 10.

The site can be found at:

According to the website:

SWEEP is an international consortium which includes USAID, SJSU, eight universities in Vietnam, government Ministries, Cisco Systems, Inc., and community agencies and stakeholders. The purpose of SWEEP is to assist eight universities in Vietnam with improving their undergraduate social work educational programs. The project, which is funded through September, 2015, aims to improve:

  • The administration of social work programs
  • Faculty capabilities in teaching and research
  • Social work curriculum, and
  • Network communication among the universities through the use of improved technology

“This site includes important resources from past SWEEP activities in the areas of professional development, research, curriculum development and collaboration,” Hines said in an email. “Lists of participant names and affiliations, photographs and information about upcoming events are also available on the site.”

The site will be updated as new events and activities occur, such as the upcoming SWEEP Leadership Academy at San José State University in October.
