1952: Becoming Accredited

The School of Social Work was admitted as a charter member of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the national social work education accrediting organization, in 1952.

Dean Schneck, long-time director of field education, worked extensively with CSWE to bring the School’s nationally-known model of field education to prominence from the 1970s to his retirement in 1999.

The School has continued to maintain accreditation with CSWE since the 1950s.
