Path to Licensure Institute

The Path to Licensure Institute allows selected social work educators to delve into the details of professional regulation and take a leadership role in integrating licensing and regulation throughout the social work curriculum.


Scholars selected to participate in the institute:

  • Learn about integrating information on social work licensing into the social work curriculum
  • Implement a Path to Licensure program tailored for their schools
  • Complete research on social work regulation
  • Receive a stipend to cover participation in the summer intensive meeting


The Path to Licensure Institute centers on a multiday intensive held at ASWB headquarters every two years. Taught by faculty with a background in social work teaching and social work regulation, the intensive lays the groundwork for participating scholars’ Path to Licensure projects.
