Pennsylvania Association of Undergraduate Social Work Education (PAUSWE)

The Pennsylvania Association of Undergraduate Social Work Education (PAUSWE) was originally formed in 1973 as the result of discussions among emerging BSW programs across the state interested in advancing baccalaureate social work education. The purpose focused on providing opportunities for networking among the programs statewide and regionally in order to identify shared concerns and develop strategies to address those concerns. The overall purpose of the PAUSWE is to provide both statewide and regional forums (including teleconferences and listserv discussions) for faculty, directors, staff, students, and others interested or involved in baccalaureate social work education in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In 2014, the PAUSWE moved its annual conference to align with the annual NASW-PA conference. Each year, PAUSWE will continue to hold a dinner and BSW student poster presentations on the Friday night of the NASW-PA conference, as well as Saturday morning sessions focused on issues relevant to social work educators, students, and practitioners.

Current PAUSWE Officers:

PAUSWE President, Michele Belliveau, West Chester University,
PAUSWE President-Elect, Mary Rita Weller, Kutztown University,
PAUSWE Secretary, Margaret Smith, Edinboro University, Smith,
PAUSWE Treasurer, Mary Daly, Mansfield University,
