CSWE Compass

Navigating Social Work Education & Advocacy!

Welcome to CSWE’s weekly newsletter, CSWE Compass: Navigating Social Work Education & Advocacy!

Visit the archives for Compass newsletters sent after July 28, 2021.

CSWE partners with North America’s largest B2B publisher, Multiview, to produce a weekly CSWE Compass that includes a hand-curated selection of social work and higher education news—in addition to updates on CSWE’s initiatives, councils and commissions, webinars, resources, membership, public policy, the Grand Challenges for Social Work, program spotlights, and our upcoming Annual Program Meeting.

CSWE is also glad to offer programs the opportunity to advertise in CSWE Compass and share their information with CSWE members. Those who have advertised with CSWE in the recent past may hear from Multiview about advertising opportunities in Compass, so please know that they are a trusted partner of CSWE.
