The Clearinghouse for Economic Well-Being in Social Work Education is a national platform for the dissemination of teaching resources and tools to assist social work faculty members to integrate a more economic informed perspective in their classrooms. The clearinghouse was made possible with generous funding from the Calvin K. Kazanjian Economics Foundation, Inc. and the New York Community Trust.
