Jon Hudson

Dr. Hudson joined the faculty in 2015 and teaches in both the BSW and MSW programs, primarily in the areas of theory and practice. His primary interests are the implications of the natural environment for social work, spirituality and social work, ethics, and qualitative research.

Dr. Hudson received his BSW and MSW degrees at St. Louis University in the family concentration; a practice centered program steeped in the social work traditions of family systems theory and the person-in environment perspective.

He took his PhD at the University of Kansas, School of Social Welfare in August of 2014, where the Strengths Perspective for
social work was born. During his time at KU he taught ten semesters at both the undergraduate and master’s levels in two core areas of the curriculum, practice and human behavior in the social environment and the natural environment to social work’s
professional domain.

Dr. Hudson’s dissertation, The Natural Environment in Social Work Education, examines how social work educators are integrating issues of the natural environment into their teaching in the United States. Dr. Hudson’s role as a teacher is to use content to teach awareness and reflection and analysis leading to critical thinking. Further, how to integrate theory in practice and to help students transition from an education system that posits them as receptacles for information, to one in which they are expected to take a larger role in their education, actively seeking-out knowledge and understanding.
