Hamilton Center Endows ISU's Dept. of Social Work - February 2002

Hamilton Center Inc. recently created an endowment of $25,000 for Indiana State University's department of social work.

The Hamilton Center Endowed Social Work Fund will help provide additional funds above the department's normal budget. Because it is an endowment, only the interest earned will be spent; the principle will remain intact.

It will help fund guest speakers, distance education (including the use of statewide multimedia programs) and traditional format activities such as in-service training, conferences, seminars and workshops.

According to William Tromble, director of development for the College of Arts and Sciences, "The gift will grow over the years and will continue to bring in nationally known speakers and aid in planning and conducting workshops and conferences, seminars and workshops."

Galen Goode, CEO of Hamilton Center Inc., agreed that the partnership will be beneficial to the Wabash Valley.

"We are excited about the continuing education partnership with Indiana State University's Department of Social Work," Goode said. "This cooperative effort will allow us to host nationally known experts in the field of human services, which will ultimately provide the community. with well-trained social workers."
