Diversity Task Forces

In the past few years the CSWE Board of Directors has created task forces to address specific issues in social work education. The groups work for a short period of time and then present reports of their findings along with recommendations for CSWE. The following are the reports from those groups.

American Indians and Native Alaskans in Social Work Education

The Native American Task Force conducted a study of the status of American Indians and Native Alaskans that included surveys of social work programs, faculty members, and practitioners, and focus groups with Native American students. The task force was chaired by Suzanne Cross, a CSWE Senior Scholar. A final report on the findings from the study was accepted by the CSWE Board of Directors in 2009 (PDF).

Latino/as in Social Work Education

The Task Force on Latino/as in Social Work Education designed and administered a survey of social work programs in the fall of 2006 to gather information about Latino/a faculty, including recruitment and retention strategies and resources. A final report (PDF) was accepted by the CSWE Board of Directors along with recommendations. The task force was chaired by Larry Ortiz.
