The Association of Caribbean Social Work Educators (ACSWE) has announced the 13th Conference of Caribbean and International Social Work Educators scheduled to take place in Jamaica at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Mona Campus between June 26 – 30, 2017.

The last conference was held in Grenada in July 2015. Other conferences have been held from the Bahamas in the North to Guyana in South. Two conferences (2011 and 2013) have been held outside of the English-speaking Caribbean (Martinique and Curacao).

The Association of Caribbean Social Work Educators is a regional professional association which provides a forum in which issues related to social work education and social development in the Caribbean can be addressed, and where moral and practical support can be given to Caribbean social work educators and practitioners. The ACSWE also works to improve the standard of social work education in the Caribbean.
