Accreditation

Pacific University’s MSW program has begun the accreditation process with the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the national accrediting body for social work programs. We have submitted our initial application and will keep you informed of our progress during the accreditation process. We fully expect to enter candidacy status during the 2014-2015 academic year.

Meanwhile, we are building on a strong foundation. Our undergraduate social work program is a CSWE accredited bachelor of social work program and, of course, our entire university is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.

Pacific is a member of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, the Oregon Independent Colleges Foundation, the Oregon Independent Colleges Association, the American Association of University Women, the Council for Higher Education of the United Church of Christ, the College Scholarship Service, the Northwest Conference of Independent Colleges, the National Collegiate Athletics Association, and the Association of Independent Liberal Arts Colleges for Teacher Education.
