Fostering Accountability

This chapter reviews the history of university/agency partnerships in child welfare research and training. The establishment of closer research ties between universities and public agencies has frequently grown out of the desire to forge tighter linkages between universities and child welfare departments in the training of students and staff for public service careers. Many of the obstacles that have impeded educational collaborations in the past can also affect research partnerships. Thus, the chapter's review of the past record of these relations can help to clarify the opportunities and challenges involved in translating evidence-based research and education, from the academy to the field of public child welfare.
