Associate Professor of Social Work and MSW Director
Greta Slater, Associate Professor and IV-E Coordinator, joined the faculty in 2004.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Manchester University in 1992, my MSW from University of Kentucky in 1995, my PhD from Indiana University in 2005, and my Masters in Public Administration (MPA) in 2017. I have been a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) since 1999 and my practice background centers around trauma and post-traumatic growth. I have worked with victims of intimate partner violence, families involved with child protective services, people who have experienced sexual trauma (across the lifespan), adolescent sexual offenders, and older adult victims of abuse and neglect. My research has focused on self-care, suicide, and improving social work education. Most recently I have been working with Volunteers of America to evaluate the FreshStart residential opioid addiction program for mothers and children. I love teaching practice classes and research. I'm an item-writer for the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) national licensing exams and have been involved in multiple projects since 2008. I care deeply about social work social work credentialing, accreditation, and assessment of student outcomes. My hobbies include triathlon (two-time Ironwoman), traveling and playing outside with my husband, three kids, and our Jack Russell terrier.
