About Us

Founded in 1952, the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) is the national association representing social work education in the United States. Its members include over 750 accredited baccalaureate and master’s degree social work programs, as well as individual social work educators, practitioners, and agencies dedicated to advancing quality social work education. Through its many initiatives, activities, and centers, CSWE supports quality social work education and provides opportunities for leadership and professional development, so that social workers play a central role in achieving the profession’s goals of social and economic justice. CSWE’s Commission on Accreditation is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as the sole accrediting agency for social work education in the United States and its territories.


What's New

The Oxford University Press will publish an Encyclopedia of Macro Social Work this year and has extended until February 14, 2020, its call for new topics to be considered for inclusion. Articles written for the Encyclopedia of Macro Social Work should be directly focused on macro social work, defined broadly to include macro practice methods as well as macro theories, concepts, ideologies, problems, and contexts relating to macro social work.
Find highlights from the Council on Social Work Education’s many events, initiatives and achievements in the 2018–2019 Annual Report, available here.
