Abstract

This article reports on educational policy that allows well-established social work programs to use alternative methods for their self-study and reaffirmation processes. The policy was approved by the Council of Social Work Education's (CSWE) Commission on Accreditation and will allow programs to focus on their own strengths, goals, and objectives. The article discusses a baccalaureate social work program at a small liberal arts college and how it completed its own alternative self-study. Information is also provided on CSWE proposals and regulations, auditing, and community collaboration.
