"In celebration of Social Work Month, Women’s History Month, and World Social Work Day (March 18, 2014), CSWE has published a paper celebrating the life and work of the late Katherine A. Kendall (former CSWE executive director) and two of her colleagues and former CSWE presidents, Herman Stein and M. C. “Terry” Hokenstad, for their many contributions to social work education domestically and internationally."
In 1991, the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW) created an award in Kendall's honor. Dr. Herman Stein, who was a dean of the Mandel School and a former president of IASSW, won it in 1994 (he passed away in 2009). Dr. Terry Hokenstad (pictured with Katherine Kendall), also a former dean and Distinguished Faculty Professor at the Mandel School who serves as a United Nations' NGO representative for IASSW, won the award in 2004.
The new editor will share the journal's commitment to bringing together the best thinking and most advanced knowledge and research about the special needs, challenges, and opportunities of nonprofit organizations. Ideal candidates will have earned significant distinction in the field of nonprofit management and leadership. The editor reports to the dean of the Mandel School, but can be based at any academic or research institution.
The Mandel School offers a Master of Nonprofit Organizations as a key component of the school's commitment to educating emerging leaders in the nonprofit arena and which builds upon nearly 25 years of expertise in delivering nonprofit management education at Case Western Reserve University.
