Social Work Assistant Professor Bonita Sharma was appointed as a member of the Council on Global Social Issues by the Council on Social Work Education effective July 2018. The Commission on Global Social Work Education works with other international organizations to promote international programs and projects and to develop the international dimension of the social work curricula. Sharma was selected for her research, practice and expertise in the area of global social work education.
“I am honored to have been selected to serve on the Council,” said Sharma.
“I am excited to use my knowledge and experiences in highlighting current global and international issues for social work academics, researchers and practitioners in building strong and holistic curricula for our students. From my service, I hope for our students to gain insights in ways they can contextualize global and international issues in their understanding of global and international social work practice and bring home the relevance to their local practice.”
Sharma currently teaches Global Context of Social Work to graduate students in the Department of Social Work.
