Laurentian social work program receives accreditation for two more years

February 14, 2017

Students of Laurentian University’s social work program were relieved last week to learn that the program has received accreditation for two more years, reports CBC. The program was reportedly at risk of losing accreditation, but Laurentian learned last week that its English, French, and Indigenous social work programs will receive two more years of accreditation. “The need for our program to be accredited would directly affect whether or not we could register as social workers with our college,” says Stephanie Sindori, a fourth year-student and president of the students association for the English School of Social Work. To keep its accreditation, the university reportedly needs to hire eight additional full-time and one additional part-time staff member. A Laurentian spokesperson says that the school has already posted job openings, and hiring should take place over the next year. CBC
