Records of the School of Social Work (formerly the Institute of Social Work); the first curriculum in social work at the University of Michigan was established in 1921 when sociology staff developed a curriculum which included background courses in the social sciences and field work. By the 1980s, the curriculum was completely revised to provide students with multiple practice skills, expertise in a field of service, and the capacity to assess and evaluate professional practice. Materials in the digital repository currently consist of archived School of Social Work websites from 2003, 2006, and 2008.
