DID YOU KNOW
The Kent School of Social Work has a major role in a 5-year, federally funded research grant to strengthen the country’s child welfare agency workforce and, ultimately, improve the lives of children it serves. The UofL portion is $2.1 million for the evaluation part of the grant, which is expected to total $15 million for the consortium of five universities and three child welfare consultants. The group has launched the Quality Improvement Center for Workforce Development through the grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration’s Children’s Bureau.

Partnership for a Green City Energy Tip 11: Vampire load – home and office
Home and work office equipment such as desktop computers, monitors, printers and anything with a digital display such as microwaves and coffee machines are also working against the electric bill. Many of those chargers around the house that keep cell phones, power tools and MP3 players at the ready constantly draw power when plugged in. You have the power to make a difference in what you unplug, or you can plug items into a toggle-switch power strip and turn off the switch to stop energy draw.
