Social work research associate professor selected for Fulbright Specialist Program
Mary Beth Rauktis, research associate professor in the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work, was awarded a Fulbright Specialist Program grant, part of the larger Fulbright Program, to travel to Assam, India in August.
Rauktis will work with faculty and students at Don Bosco University, which offers a two-year MSW program and a doctoral program at its Tapesia campus. Her seminars will touch on subjects including global perspectives of social work; locating the self in the journey of social work; and principles and approaches of child- and family-centered social work practice. She will also assist faculty in preparing their textbook on community-engaged practice and research.
