About BPD

Founded in 1975, the Association of Baccalaureate Social Work Program Directors is a voluntary, individual membership association representing the interests of undergraduate education and practice in social work. Nearly 800 strong, the Association's membership includes BSW program directors, baccalaureate faculty, field coordinators, social work educators, practitioners, and our most valuable commodity: our students. Together we focus on excellence in education and practice to help our communities thrive.
