The establishment of social work programs worldwide has grown exponentially in the last twenty years, notably in the Pacific Rim, Eastern Europe, and Africa. In 2000, the board of the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW) commissioned a world census of social work programs and established a permanent standing committee charged with tracking program development as part of the IASSW commitment to social work education. The purpose of a membership survey in 2005 was to elicit from member programs mid-decade data on those characteristics of social work programs that had been asked about in the 2000 census. This chapter presents a reanalysis of the 2005 membership survey data to explore the assumption that IASSW member schools were meeting the stipulations in the Global Standards.
