Clinical sociology is receiving increasing attention at the undergraduate and graduate level and among practicing sociologists Much has been written about how the undergraduate and/or graduate curriculum can be modified to respond to the demands for a more applied or clinical approach Little, however, has been written about how a department might involve its current and future faculty in a clinical program.

One program which has successfully integrated a strong liberal arts based program with an active clinical emphasis is the University of Arkansas at Little Rock'sHumanist as Mediator program This program is instructive in that it has achieved a high level of programmatic success and at the same time enjoys the support of participating faculty. This program is discussed as a prototype for those interested in initiating or enhancing a clinical sociology program for faculty
