September 1, 2010



Here’s what’s happening, A to Z. Details on all announcements are located on the ground-floor and main-level bulletin boards.

*NEW GSSS STUDENT ORIENTATION- On Wednesday, September 1st, we will be holding our New Student Orientation from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please join us for an informative day that will help ease students into their first semester at Fordham Westchester! Complimentary breakfast & lunch will be served.

*UPDATED:GSSS Academic Calendar 2010-2011- Please click the following images for full review.

*Ethical Eye- This semester, a newsletter discussing ethics in social work practice -- the "ETHICAL EYE" -- will be published. Our first edition will include thoughts from faculty about ethics in social work practice. Subsequent issues, however, will involve YOU! We have established an anonymous web-based submission form for you to submit ethical dilemmas encountered in your practice for future publication and discussion.

Here's how it works:

1.) You experience a situation in your internship that you think involves ethical decision-making -- a client, for example, asks you to "keep a secret" but you are part of a treatment team; or your research project involves 5 year-old children and you wonder how you can ask for their consent to participate.

2.) You go to the web by clicking on Click Here to take survey and fill out the easy to follow submission guide.

3.) Your anonymous submission is read by a committee made up of an administrator, faculty from field, the Ethical Eye editor, and representatives from your student congress.

4.) The committee will then make a selection of scenarios from your submission to publish for our Fordham community. The publication will include responses from selected faculty and students, creating a community dialogue.
