Council on Social Work Education Reaffirms UConn SSW Accreditation Through 2021

Dear SSW Community,

I am delighted to share that the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) has voted to reaffirm the accreditation of the UConn School of Social Work. The CSWE Commission on Accreditation (COA) letter states:

ssw-buildingAt its October 2013 meeting, the Commission on Accreditation (COA) reviewed the Self Study, the COA Letter of Instructions, the Site Visit Report, and the program’s response to the Report as the Reaffirmation application for the Master of Social Work program. The COA voted to reaffirm the accreditation of the program for eight years, ending in October 2021.

This outcome of our reaffirmation process is due to the hard work of many members of the SSW Community. Please accept my heartfelt appreciation for the role you played in this multi-year process. Special thanks and acknowledgement are due Professors Havens, Kurz, Davidson and Wayne for their leadership, tremendous efforts, and dedication, which has led to our successful reaffirmation of accreditation. Kudos to all!
