Ryan Zayac (rzayac) (Tue, 19 Jul 2022 15:55:49 GMT): The accrediting body for Social Work - the Council for Social Work Education (CSWE) - recognizes the MSW as an appropriate degree for teaching graduate level course work (see attachment). Given his MSW, doctoral level coursework, and professional experience, I would support this application. Pending SACSCOC's review, we will have to revisit this if they do not agree with CSWE's opinion.
Ryan Zayac (rzayac) (Tue, 02 Aug 2022 19:25:43 GMT): Approved unanimously.
