Jennifer Cullen PhD

On-Campus MSW Program Director & Assistant Professor

    Widener University (PA)

  • MSW Social Work 1998

My overarching research agenda is to explore and understand the professional identity development of social work students, how values and personal attributes contribute to that development, and then how courses can be structured to enhance and continue to support the developmental process. My research goal is to examine the process of identity development to provide insight to the process, thereby enabling the development of course content that will further strengthen the students' professional development.
