KASWEA operates through the auspices of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

Through its many initiatives, activities, global networking, and collaborative partnerships with all CSWE diversity and social justice-related commissions and affiliated groups, KASWEA supports quality of social work education and provides opportunities for leadership and professional development so that Korean American social workers play a central role in achieving the profession’s goals of social and economic justice.
