The editorial board is composed of eight members who are responsible for encouraging authors to submit articles to the journal; promote the journal among colleagues and students; analyze trends and needs within the profession and seek out article submissions to meet the needs; and read and rate manuscript submissions. The editorial board of Social Work, the official journal of the National Association of Social Workers, has been in existence since 1955.

The Leadership Academy in Aging is a partnership between the New York Academy of Medicine, the National Association of Deans and Directors of Schools of Social Work (NADD), and the John A. Hartford Foundation. The goal of the Leadership Academy in Aging is to assist Social Work Deans and Directors to become leaders in the field of aging education and policy. “I look forward to using this opportunity to support the School in maintaining our work with older adults as an area of excellence,” said Dean Raheim.
