Research & Statistics

The CSWE organizational mission includes the charge to advocate for social work education and research. CSWE works toward that mission through the Research Agenda (PDF), which outlines the need for research to inform policy and practice and to serve the needs of CSWE member programs—their deans, directors, faculty members, and students.

CSWE conducts research through surveys, the annual census of social work programs, and quality assurance measures for the Commission on Accreditation. Descriptions of the ongoing research efforts and reports on the results are available in this section. Contact the Institutional Research staff for more information about projects and data.
