Social Work Program Reference Form
The EMU Social Work program is a professional program accredited by the Council on
Social Work Education (CSWE). After declaring the major and taking introductory courses, students must make formal

As part of this process, students request three references from persons who can attest to the student’s character, integrity, and aptitude for becoming a caring professional social worker.

Additionally, candidates should demonstrate personal values and attitudes compatible with professional social work values which include:
- social justice
