School of Social Work doctoral candidate Adams offered teaching fellowship at West Chester University




Raymond Adams has been offered an inaugural position as the 2019 Frederick Douglass Teaching Fellow at West Chester University.

“I am elated to have this opportunity to expand upon my teaching pedagogy,” says Adams.

Adams will teach a one month course around the DSM V, which will begin preparing master-level social work students to recognize symptomology and conduct sound and valid assessments post-graduation properly.

“This fellowship will shape how I understand and appreciate the various backgrounds of the students who will become the future change agents in social work practice, research, and social welfare policy,” says Adams.

In an effort to continue the spirit of Douglass’ life of public service, the Frederick Douglass Teaching Scholars Summer Program is designed to provide graduate students teaching experiences and potential employment opportunities within university settings that are strongly committed to cultural diversity.

Currently, Adams is an assistant professor in the area of Social Work at Southern Arkansas University.
