The DSU Department of Social Work recently received notification that the Commission on Accreditation for the Council of Social Work Education has reaffirmed the accreditation of both its undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
Both programs are now fully accredited until 2020.
Dr. Marlene Saunders, chair of the DSU Department of Social Work, said the full reaffirmation of accreditation speaks to the quality and integrity of the curricula of the BSW and MSW programs.
“This achievement also exemplifies Delaware State University’s capacity to provide the social work profession with competent social workers who exemplify the University’s mission, vision and values,” Dr. Saunders said. “With this accomplishment, the Department of Social Work will continue its efforts to enhance the well-being of people and maximize the functioning of social welfare organizations for change and social justice through research, practice and community engagement.”
