New York, New York – The Touro College Graduate School of Social Work recently gathered together administration, faculty, students and alumni to celebrate their School’s obtaining national accreditation from the Council of Social Work Education (CSWE), the exclusive national accrediting body for social work higher education.

CSWE accreditation is a rigorous multi-year process, which verifies that degree programs meet high standards considered essential to high quality social work education. Touro College President and CEO Dr. Alan Kadish said, “The Graduate School of Social Work perpetuates the highest ideals of the Jewish social conscience by enabling others to live a life of meaning, purpose and inner fulfillment.” The School will honor the service-oriented vision of Touro College’s late founder, Dr. Bernard Lander, by establishing the Dr. Bernard and Sarah Lander Distinguished Community Service MSW Award.
