In November 2011, the SAU School of Social Work was reaccredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) for the maximum duration of eight years through 2019.
This accreditation is an honor and an enormous effort by the MSW School faculty and staff, as well as many others across campus. We look forward to 8 more years of preparing competent and ethical social work professionals who enrich lives and advocate a just society.
The MSW program has developed and implemented a comprehensive and multi-method assessment plan for the measurement of student competency outcomes. The assessment plan is designed to provide evaluative data used to monitor and enhance program quality, foster student competency outcome achievement, and assess the curriculum's effectiveness. The assessment plan is internally consistent with the stated mission of the MSW program and is grounded in the goals derived from that mission.
