The Social Work Program at Warren Wilson is nationally accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

The program offers an educationally sound, academically challenging, ethically principled and socially relevant curriculum and approach solidly framed by Warren Wilson’s learning Triad of liberal arts academics, work and service.
