CSWE Leadership Scholars in Social Work Education Program (LSSEP)

The CSWE Leadership Scholars in Social Work Education Program (LSSEP) is designed to attract a cohort of future leaders each year and provide them targeted education, training, and mentoring. The program will prepare these future leaders for diverse roles and positions within academia such as associate and full professors; program directors; deans; associate deans; field education directors; and members of boards, commissions, and councils, among others.
