Ericka Deglau, PhD, LSW developed and has directed Rutgers School of Social Work’s Intensive Weekend program, an MSW program designed for students employed full time in the human services, since its inception in 2006. When the program initially began, it was directed to NJ’s public child welfare employees, graduating 152, the majority of whom remain in service and many who have attained positions of leadership. The program subsequently began to admit students employed in a broad range of human service capacities, welcoming over 600 MSWs to the profession who were able to obtain graduate social work education without interrupting their careers. Prior to coming to Rutgers, Dr. Deglau worked in the areas of child welfare and HIV/AIDS, primarily in program development. She completed her PhD in Anthropology, with a focus on child welfare reform, at the New School for Social Research, and her MSW, concentrating on community organization and program development, at Hunter School of Social Work, both while working full time.
