Purdue University Northwest’s Social Work program earned its initial four-year accreditation from the Council on Social Work Education recognizing the college’s work to educate students and help residents across the Region.
“Social workers serve vulnerable populations, and they work in hospitals, courts, and social service organizations,” said Elaine Carey, dean of PNW’s College of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences. “Purdue Northwest’s CSWE accreditation is a testament to the achievements of the faculty and field education partners who have worked tirelessly to provide an excellent education to PNW students while enhancing the lives of the citizens of Northwest Indiana.”
Pamela Saylor, clinical assistant professor and social work program director, said recognition resulted from a three-year process that included a self-study, site visits and review by CSWE’s Commission on Accreditation.
The accreditation allows PNW graduates to enter a master’s degree program with advanced standing, qualifies them to sit for the exam for the bachelor’s degree level licensure in the State of Indiana, and puts them in position to earn a master’s degree-level license faster.
