First Students Graduate from Baylor - Moldova MSW Program

On November 20th, 2013, The Baptist Standard published an article on first graduates of Baylor University's Master of Social Work program offered on campus of the Bible College in Moldova. I (Oleg) helped in launching and development of the program, serving as a liaison between the school in Moldova and Baylor.

Friends from the Woman's Missionary Union and the WMU Foundation based in Birmingham, Alabama, U.S.A. are to be credited with the idea of the partnership between the two schools. The program began to take shape when first Baylor University's School of Social Work (Diana Garland, Dean) professors Drs. Preston and Genie Dyer visited Moldova in 2005.
