School of Social Work
Social Work is a dynamic, rewarding, yet demanding profession serving individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. We teach students the skills and knowledge to help people solve problems. We have "informed passion" for improving the quality of life for all people, especially for the most vulnerable members of our society.
