Council on Social Work Education
The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) is a nonprofit national association representing more than 2,500 individual members, as well as graduate and undergraduate programs of professional social work education. Founded in 1952, this partnership of educational and professional institutions, social welfare agencies, and private citizens is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as the sole accrediting agency for social work education in this country. Each CSWE Annual Report covers highlights of the organization's activities for a complete fiscal year (which runs from July 1 of one year to June 30 of the next). Prepared by a staff team and published through the CSWE Office on Member and Communication Services, the report serves to inform members and the public regarding important initiatives, program updates, and other news of the year just completed. This annual report highlights many ways in which CSWE has worked to advance social work education to best prepare the next generation of practitioners to meet the challenges set before a society challenged by increased globalization, changing demographics of the United States and income inequality. It is urgent that social work facilitate a more just society and world. Ensuring equal opportunity and equal protection for historically and emerging underrepresented groups is central to social work values and principles. It is time for social work to lead necessary institutional and policy changes, and that begins with educational programs.
