The bachelor's and master's programs in Wichita State University's School of Social Work have been reaccredited through June 2021 by the Council on Social Work Education.
"The accreditation assures that the School of Social Work will continue to educate knowledgeable, skilled and ethical social work professionals to meet the changing and growing social service needs of our community, state, nation and world," said Brien Bolin, associate professor and director of WSU's social work school.
The School of Social Work's bachelor's program was first accredited in 1974, and, in 2003, the master's program received its initial reaccreditation. In 2013, more than 70 bachelor's students and 50 master's students graduated. There are about 400 undergraduate and graduate students in the social work school.
During the 2012-2013 academic year, WSU social work students completed more than 90,000 unpaid practicum hours at local social service agencies, equaling about $1.7 million in economic impact.
Since 2007, more than 600 students have graduated from WSU's School of Social Work.
