The Grace College Board of Trustees, President Ron Manahan, and the faculty and staff of the Social Work Department has announced the reaffirmation of its Baccalaureate Social Work Program by the Council on Social Work Education for the full, eight-year cycle. Congratulations to the department on this significant accomplishment!
The Social Work Department, which had a site visit in March, was notified of the reaffirmation on June 18. Dr. Carrie Yocum, department chair, says “CSWE is the professional body that accredits bachelor and master level social work programs. Social work accreditation is beneficial to students and the institution because it assures that programs have a level of performance, integrity, and quality that entitles them to the confidence of the educational community. It offers professional judgment about the quality of the program, encourages continual improvement of the program, and assures the competence of social work practitioners.”
