The St. Kate's - St. Thomas Partnership
In May 2018, the University of St. Thomas and St. Catherine University announced the end of their formal collaboration on their joint social work programs. This change took effect at the end of August 2019.
Immediately after the dissolution, the joint social work programs transitioned from being accredited as a collaborative program to pursuing individual program accreditation. Both St. Thomas and St. Kate’s are pursuing independent accreditation through the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), which accredits both the BSW and MSW programs individually. The BSW and MSW programs at each university are following an abbreviated one-year candidacy process that CSWE has customized for independent programs following the closure of a joint program relationship.
