Curriculum Vitae

Area of Interest:

Susan Glassburn has been a faculty member at IUPUI since 2004, first as a recruiter and advisor, next as a lecturer, and currently as an Assistant Faculty member.    Susan currently teaches practice skills courses as well as health concentration courses.  Her background is in mental health and health care and her favorite jobs prior to joining the faculty were in home health care and hospice.  She currently sees a few clients at a local private mental health clinic every week to keep her practice skills up to date.  Her dissertation was titled :  New Master of Social Work Graduates in the Workforce:  The Journey from Student to Professional.  This qualitative grounded theory study focused on the experience of 27 MSW grads in their first 9 – 18 months of employment.   She believes that by better understanding the experience of these new grads, social work employers and educators can better prepare and nurture our new social work professionals in the field.
