Be a Leader!

There are several ways that CSWE membership allows you to be a leader in social work education:

CSWE Commissioner or Councilor

Each year CSWE seeks to identify new leadership for its commissions and councils. Please consider nominating those individuals who have an interest in this important volunteer work and leadership development or nominate yourself.
Nominations should include:

  • the consent of the nominee
  • current CV
  • statement identifying the requested appointment area and describing special areas of expertise and/or interest that will benefit that area

If appointed, nominees must become a member of CSWE. Information about the six commissions, along with their corresponding councils, can be found on the Governance Web page. Appointments are made by the CSWE chair every July. Please note: to be considered for membership on the Commission on Accreditation, you must have at least 3 years experience as a site visitor.

CSWE will start accepting volunteers applications in the beginning of April 2017. More details will be provided soon.

Journal of Social Work Education Contributing Editor

The Journal of Social Work Education is seeking experienced scholars in social work education and related fields who can make studied judgments about manuscripts and provide helpful comments for authors. If you are interested in reviewing manuscripts for JSWE, please send a letter of interest along with a curriculum vitae to

Please be aware, in an effort to streamline the accounting process, CSWE is changing the individual membership cycle.  All current CSWE individual memberships will expire on March 31, 2018.

Beginning April 1, 2018, individual CSWE memberships will start on April 1 and end on March 31 of the following year. From May 1, 2017 until March 31, 2018, individual members will be invoiced based on the current membership fee structure seen in the membership application (PDF) . Within a month of receiving your dues payment, CSWE will issue a refund check for prorated dues that apply beyond the start of the new membership cycle.
