Board of Directors

CalSWEC's Board of Directors serves in an advisory capacity. It makes decisions regarding the center's objectives to:

  • Advance social work education, practice, and research;
  • Conduct research and develop programs for the advancement of social work education and practice in the publicly supported social services; and 
  • Develop and administer financial support for students in social work education programs.


The board meets at least twice annually in regular session in addition to special sessions as necessary. Board membership may fluctuate, from a minimum of 20 to a maximum of 30 members.


The permanent committees of CalSWEC's Board of Directors (revised in 2016 following approval of CalSWEC's Strategic Plan) meet on the same schedule as the board and are listed below, with descriptions and membership rosters.
