UVF Welcomes Sport Management Director Program

Teelah Grimes
The Department of Business welcomes Assistant Professor Teelah Grimes. Grimes serves as Sport Management program director. Grimes will teach and advise students, and also enhance the program curriculum while developing and launching new courses. Grimes is looking forward to engaging with her students, while building bridges for the university and its students in the arena of sport industry. She hopes to teach students the value of integrity through biblical principles as they become leaders — principles that they will carry with them long after UVF and into their careers.

Grimes holds a Master of Science in Literacy Education from Dowling College in New York and a Master of Science in Sport Management with a concentration in Sport Administration from Liberty University in Virginia. Grimes brings to UVF experience within NCAA Division II athletics.

Social Work Program Gains Reaccreditation Until 2024

Social Work
The University of Valley Forge (UVF) Social Work program received national recognition from the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) once again, earning reaccreditation until 2024. Under the leadership of Associate Professor Debra Brown, D.Min., Social Work program director and Department of Behavioral Sciences chair, the program went through a yearlong arduous process. "It was a UVF community effort to acquire the CSWE reaccreditation to make this a successful endeavor," Brown said. 

Brown and Assistant Professor Karin McCadam, social work field placement director, wrote and submitted a 600-page, three volume self-study to show that the program meets accreditation requirements and standards. The submitted study was followed by a site visit by Janet Furness, Ed.D., director of the Masters in Social Work program at Nyack College in New York. Social work students stayed on campus after finals at the end of the spring 2016 semester to meet Furness. The reaccreditation was possible with the cooperation of administrators and staff from the Department of Behavioral Sciences, as well as the Board of Trustees and President's Cabinet who generously funded the process. 

Advanced standing is a significant outcome of the accreditation/reaccreditation process. UVF graduates who attend a CSWE approved Master of Social Work program may complete graduate school studies in one year instead of two years. The reaccreditation represents UVF's commitment to high quality education and community service.
