David Lasuertmer – Editor
David Lasuertmer has been working as a social worker, primarily in the areas of youth and homelessness, since he graduated from the University of Chicago’s School of Social Service Administration (AM ’09). He currently lives in Bloomington, IN with his wife and two children.

The goal of Best MSW Programs is to provide social workers and prospective social work students with trustworthy, accurate information about their careers and education: the top social work degree programs, the many career opportunities in social work, and the benefits of a career in social work. To pay for the research and writing of Best MSW, we accept compensation from sponsored schools, keeping all of our content free for users.

All sponsored schools are clearly identified and have no influence over our rankings. Ranking are developed based on verified, unbiased data gathered from independent sources, and revenue is kept strictly separated from content. Prospective students may share their contact information with our sponsors as they wish, but no information is collected without the user’s choosing.
