Introduction

The nonprofit Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), founded in 1952 and located in Alexandria, Virginia, is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as the sole accrediting agency for social work education in the United States. CSWE seeks to foster the high quality of social work education through preparation of competent professionals in social work, national leadership, and a forum for collective action. It sets and maintains policy and program standards, accredits bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in social work, promotes research and faculty development, and advocates for social work education. CSWE represents more than 3,000 individual members, as well as graduate and undergraduate programs of professional social work education. CSWE has hosted the Annual Program Meeting (APM) for social work educators, practitioners, and students since 1954. APM offers a venue for continuing education, presentation of research, networking, and discussion of current issues for social workers and allied disciplines. CSWE also sponsors CSWE Press, a niche publisher concerned with the philosophy, theory, and practice of teaching; the process and evaluation of learning; and the organization and structure of social work education.
