Welcome to the California Social Work Education Center (CalSWEC), the nation's largest state coalition of social work educators and practitioners.

CalSWEC's Mission

Hosted by the University of California, Berkeley School of Social Welfare, CalSWEC was created in 1990 by a partnership of social work educators and practitioners dedicated to developing a professional social service workforce to effectively serve California's diverse population.

The coalition initially focused on public child welfare but in recent years has broadened its scope to include the fields of mental/behavioral health and aging.
