Bachelor of Social Work Program Awarded Full Accreditation
November 8, 2021
The Grand View Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program was recently awarded full accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). Accreditation occurs through a 7-year process that includes pre-candidacy, candidacy, initial accreditation, and finally full accreditation. At the inception of the BSW, CSWE carried out three annual visits to ensure the Grand View program met accreditation expectations, which resulted initial accreditation. A repeat (reaffirmation) visit was conducted in spring 2021, the results of which were discussed at the CSWE Council on Accreditation meeting in October.
The Council voted to grant full accreditation to the Grand View BSW program. Congratulations to the social work department for their ongoing efforts to develop a BSW program that meets the high standards of national accreditation.
