With the support from Dr. Gary Bowen and the School of Social Work at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dr. Maria Roth and her research team at Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca in Romania received funding from the Romanian Government to implement the School Success Profile in Romania. The SSP was translated to Romanian and Hungarian and administered to a national sample of middle school and high school youth. The results support the international reliability and validity of core SSP measures.

In May 2010, Dr. Bowen traveled to Cluj-Napoca, Romania, to keynote an international conference, Social Ecology of School Success--Implications for Policy and Practice, which was attended by representatives across Eastern Europe. In April 2009, Dr. Maria Roth and her Romanian colleagues received a week of intensive training at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on the SSP and its administration in preparation for their work in Romania.
