The International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW) is the international professional organization that serves and represents social work education worldwide. It was founded in 1928 and since then has worked to promote the development of social work education and to ensure that the voice of social work education is represented in relevant international deliberations. This chapter gives an overview of the history of the IASSW, its structure and membership, major programs, and activities, and it concludes with a discussion of challenges for the future. First, however, the core mission of the organization, which has been remarkably constant since the founding, is presented.
