McClain partnered with families to help nurture and protect children from reports of abuse and neglect across the state.

The Springfield College School of Social Work is celebrating 25 years of continuous accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). In July 2013, the Springfield College School of Social Work was granted full national reaccreditation from the CSWE for the next eight years with no conditions. The CSWE is the exclusive national accrediting body for social work higher education and verifies that degree programs meet the high standards considered essential to quality social work education.
The Springfield College School of Social Work will be holding two open houses for prospective students. They will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Brennan Center, 45 Island Pond Road, Springfield, MA on Thursday, February 6, 2014; and Thursday, March 13, 2014.

The combined master of social work/juris doctorate is a four-year, full-time program in conjunction with Western New England University School of Law.
