The Social Work Advisory Council exists to partially satisfy this CSWE requirement. More importantly, the Advisory Council helps model the sense of community from our Benedictine values. Members of the advisory council are field supervisors, agency representatives, program graduates, and current and past student representatives. The advisory council meets a minimum of three times per academic year to provide feedback to the faculty regarding current practice issues. Faculty keeps the council informed of curriculum development needs, gate keeping concerns, faculty/staffing issues and program policy development. The advisory council provides input on relevant community practice activities, curriculum development, and assists with student’s grievance issues. Members of the advisory council also serve on the Admissions Committee screening and interviewing new applicants to the major, also reaccreditations, and exit interviews.
