Launched in 2008, at the invitation of Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan, Jordan Social Work Education for Excellence (JSWEEP) supports the establishment of the social work profession, builds the capacity for a 21st century model for social work education, and facilitates the emergence of a cadre of social work professionals who can lead effective governmental and non-governmental social welfare organizations in Jordan. The project is co-directed by Jeanette C. Takamura, Professor, and Nabila El-Bassel, the Willma and Albert Musher Professor of Social Work. Its partners include: Columbia Global Center Middle East, Jordan River Foundation, King Hussein Cancer Center, Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation, Ministry of Social Development, National Council for Family Affairs, UNICEF, and the University of Jordan.
