March 01, 2007Wheelock College Board of Trustees President Robert Lincoln, President Jackie Jenkins-Scott, Vice President for Academic Affairs Suzanne H. Pasch, Dean Kathleen Kirk Bishop and the Social Work Faculty are pleased to announce the reaffirmation of the accreditation for the Bachelor (BSW) and Master's (MSW) programs in Social Work by the Commission on Accreditation, Council on Social Work Education until the year 2015.
This reaffirmation means that Wheelock has fully met the standards required for all social work programs in the country who are seeking accreditation. For the institution and for prospective students, accreditation means they can have confidence that the program meets the standards of the profession.
The School of Social Work and Family Studies embraces the mission of the College — to improve the lives of children and families — by offering an intellectually stimulating educational experience and a range of professional career paths for students who wish to become change agents in the lives of children, families and communities. Our graduates are prepared as social workers, juvenile justice and youth advocates, child development and early intervention specialists, parent educators and family support specialists — working in schools, human services agencies and community-based organizations.
A special thank you to our students, alums, field instructors, our partnership agencies, faculty, staff, advisory board members, and all of our supporters for their passionate commitment to human rights and social justice for all children and families, particularly those who are the most discriminated against, oppressed and disadvantaged.
