The Division of Social Work strives to prepare ethical and competent social workers who can both lead and serve our richly diverse populations in the development and delivery of services that contribute to human well-being and social justice. The Division offers professional undergraduate and graduate degree programs that prepare competent and reflective social workers who apply critical thinking in social work practice and research. Rooted in long standing and evolving partnerships with community based agencies, educational institutions, local and state government, we prepare students to effectively serve culturally-diverse and vulnerable individuals, families and communities in various areas and capacities as practitioners, leaders, and social justice advocates.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our program and our students have had to adapt to a new way of learning. There have been changes in internship sites, classes have moved to a virtual setting, and course work that requires engagement with the public has been postponed. This shift has been challenging for our students but the Division of Social Work will persevere and is committed to helping our students be successful during this time of adversity.
Please consider supporting the Division of Social Work’s General Fund. This fund allows the department chair to allocate funds to the greatest needs in the Department—and during these times those needs are focused on our students. So many students are experiencing financial hardship due to this pandemic and your support can directly and immediately help them. Thank you in advance for your support.
