Faculty Present at 65th Annual Program Meeting of Council on Social Work Education (CSWE)

Each year, the Annual Program Meeting (APM) from the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) brings together over 2,500 social work educators, students, deans, and directors from around the world to promote and teach best practices in research and curriculum development for undergraduate and graduate programs.

Tulane University School of Social Work is a charter and accredited member of CSWE and proud to participate in this year’s conference in Denver. In addition to the faculty and staff from our school that went, several faculty members lead tracks, were honored, and presented papers and e-posters.
