Dean Mattison Elected to AACSB International Board of Directors

Dean of the College of Professional Studies, Sue J. Mattison, has been elected for a 3-year term to the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) Board of Directors.   Dean Mattison was elected as a representative of U.S.  Non-Accrediated Institutions by an international membership representing 52 countries.    Her term on the Board will begin July 1, 2014.  AACSB International advances quality management education worldwide through accreditation, thought leadership, and value-added services.

 UW-Green Bay’s Austin E. Cofrin School of Business is currently undergoing the accreditations process with AASCB.   The AACSB Accreditation Standards are used as the basis to evaluate a business school’s mission, operations, faculty qualifications and contributions, programs, and other critical areas. AACSB accreditation ensures students and parents that the business school is providing a top-quality education. It also ensures employers that AACSB-accredited business school graduates are ready to perform on day one. Additionally, AACSB accreditation provides many benefits to the faculty and staff at its accredited schools by attracting top students, providing greater research opportunities, and allowing for global recognition.

Dean Mattison’s leadership will contribute to the many compelling AACSB International initiatives underway, and will help to recognize UW-Green Bay’s Austin E. Cofrin School of Business.

BSW Program: Accreditation reaffirmed for 8 years!

Congratulations are in order for the UW-Green Bay Bachelors in Social Work (BSW) program.   The Commission on Accreditation for the Council on Social Work  Education (CSWE) voted to reaffirm UWGB’s baccalaurate program for eight years on Friday, February 8, 2014.    CSWE’s Commission on Accreditation is responsible for developing accreditation standards that define competent preparation and ensuring that social work programs meet them.  In accordance with the requirements of CSWE’s recognition body, the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, the CSWE Office of Social Work Accreditation (OSWA) administers a multistep accreditation process that involves program self-studies, site visits, and COA reviews.   Accredited programs like the UW-Green Bay BSW program ensure that social workers are prepared to enter the profession  at the utmost level of readiness to serve their communities.

Congratulations to the Social Work faculty and staff, led by Chair, Jolanda Sallmann.    They are truly inspiring students and transforming communities!

Independent MSW Program Approved by UW System Board of Regents

The UW system Board of Regents has unanimously approved a resolution for the development of UW Green Bay’s very own independent Master of Social Work (MSW) Program.   This will formally end the Collaborative MSW Program with UW Oshkosh which is now authorized to develop its own independent MSW Program as well. This change was made possible by the longstanding collaboration of the MSW program faculty and staff since its inception in 2003. It is expected that both programs will be up and running independently by fall of 2015. UW Green Bay’s independent program will be able to double the number of MSW graduate students that it serves on the UW Green Bay campus.
