Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) Assessment Data and Communication

The School of Social Work (SSW) at Aurora University is a combined (BSW and MSW) program accredited by Council on Social Work Education since it originated at George Williams College in Downers Grove, Illinois before finally coming to Aurora University in 1987. Since that time, the SSW programs have continually been reaffirmed by CSWE through its required eight-year cycle. Please click on the links below to view the 2008 Self Study and the official letter of reaffirmation from 2009. Please see chapter eight, beginning on page 355, "Program Assessment and Continuous Renewal," which details assessment work of both the BSW and MSW programs according to the 2001 EPAS from CSWE.
