The mission of the School of Social Work is consistent with that of Grambling State University. It is also influenced by the intent of the Consent Decree, a legal agreement between the Department of Justice and the State of Louisiana to desegregate Louisiana institutions of higher education. Incorporated and infused throughout the School's mission statement are the purposes, values and ethics of the Social Work Profession. Thus, the goals of School of Social Work at Grambling State University are to:
The BSW and MSW Program at Grambling State University is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education’s (CSWE) Board of Accreditation (BOA).
Accreditation of a baccalaureate or master’s social work program by the BOA indicates that it meets or exceeds standards of program quality evaluated through a peer review accreditation process. An accredited program has sufficient resources to meet its mission and goals and the BOA has verified that it demonstrates compliance with all sections of the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS). Accreditation applies to all program options, which includes locations and delivery methods. Accreditation provides reasonable assurance about the quality of the program and the competence of students graduating from the program.
