The Millie M. Charles School of Social Work has been awarded accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education for the next eight years. The School of Social Work, founded and named after Millie M. Charles, houses both the BSW and MSW in social work programs, both accredited.
The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) defines accreditation standards and establishes competency standards for social work education in the U.S.
“We are proud of the official recognition as it represents the commitment of the faculty and staff for continuous improvement in our School of Social Work at Southern University at New Orleans. We will continue in our quest for excellence in social work education as we move forward with new challenges in programs of studies,” said Dr. Rebecca Chaisson, Dean of the Millie Charles School of Social Work. “The current context of our lives calls in the U.S. and beyond, mandates that social workers be more actively engaged in bettering our families and our communities. We thank the Chancellor and his team for the continued support of the School of Social Work.”
Dr. James H. Ammons, Jr., Executive Vice President-Chancellor of Southern University at New Orleans, is equally proud.
“This is a testament to the quality of the programs and the impact they are having on the production of well-educated social workers in our city, Ammons said.”
