Wurzweiler Mourns Passingof Margaret Gibelman

, DSW, professor and director of its DoctoralProgram, passed away after battling lung cancer. Dr. Gibelman madea substantial contribution to the ﬁeld of social work as a scholar, author, researcher,mentor, and practitioner.“She was the consummate academic,with a commitment to scholarship, her profession, and her students,” saidSheldon R. Gelman, PhD, Dorothy andDavid I. Schachne Dean at Wurzweiler.Before coming to Wurzweiler in 1994,she taught at Rutgers University and theNational Catholic School of Social Ser-vices. Dr. Gibelman’s management expertise was in high demandamong national organizations. She served as associate executive direc-tor of the Council on Social Work Education, and executive director of the Lupus Foundation of America and the National Association of School Psychologists.Dr. Gibelman held senior staff positions with the National Con- ference on Social Welfare and the American Public Welfare Association.She served as a consultant to the National Association of Social Workers and to the Council on Accreditation for Services to Familiesand Children. A proliﬁc author, publishing more than 125 articles and book chap-ters, she also authored or co-authored eight books, including
What Social Workers Do
(1995, second edition 2005) and the more recent
N avigating Human Service Organizations
(2003).For the past several years Dr. Gibelman ran the mentoring program for all new faculty at YU and developed the research infrastructure for Manhattan Campus faculty out of the Ofﬁce of the Vice President for Academic Affairs.During the last few months of her illness, Dr. Gibelman gainedinsight into the indignities of the health care system. “The only thingthat makes us human is compassion,” she said in a message sent to Wurzweiler students at graduation in May. “Our job as social workersis to ensure that compassion will always be a part of who and what weare. In the end, that is all that is important.”
