Council on Social Work Education: Annual Report 2012/2013
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 685 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. During the 2012-2013 year numerous accomplishments have been achieved over the year and are highlighted in this report. Together, they paint a picture of a strong and vibrant organization poised to meet the challenges ahead. These accomplishments were realized through the collaborative relationships at every level of social work education. Contemporary social problems demand collaborations across professions, and CSWE wants to ensure that the social work workforce is prepared to act and lead in this environment. In addition, CSWE is committed to supporting faculty and preparing students who are ready to engage in the global arena. Finally, concerted legislative advocacy on behalf of social work education has ensured that social work students, faculty members, and programs are included and considered during the development of legislation and workforce development initiatives.
