Social Work Department Awarded Accreditation

by Diane Daniel

The Master's of Social Work Department (MSW) at California State University East Bay has been granted accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education.

The program was granted accreditation retroactive to the 2003-04 academic year, when it enrolled its first students. The accreditation remains in effect until 2010.

Over a three-year period, CSUEB worked with both Alameda and Contra Costa counties as well as a host of community-based agencies to build an MSW program to meet the social work training needs of the region.

The program's faculty developed a curriculum to respond to the area's needs for an increase in social workers trained for an urban, multicultural environment.

With the support of CSU administration and consultation with other MSW programs, the new Cal State East Bay program earned its accreditation from the council and the national recognition that comes with it. This program's accreditation provides a needed service to many Bay Area communities suffering from a shortage of MSW trained social workers.
