CSWE Bylaws Vote: Revisions Approved

CSWE members overwhelmingly supported a set of bylaw changes put forth by the Board of Directors. Members of the Board will expand access to CSWE benefits to faculty, administrators, staff, and students with member support of several changes to the organization’s bylaws.
The proposed changes in membership structure and clearer articulation of the relationship between CSWE and its accrediting function was brought to the membership for a ballot vote from May 2 until May 31, 2022. 
A red-lined version of the bylaws and a clean copy with changes incorporated can be found below. 

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 2020. More details will be provided soon.

Journal of Social Work Education Reviewers

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 [email protected].
