The School of Social Welfare provides a learning environment for individuals who wish to deepen and extend their knowledge and experience in bringing about social change. The School provides a place for the development of committed, analytical, and knowledgeable students who wish to undertake the difficult task of improving service delivery systems by attention to institutional structures.

About

Our mission statement provides a focus and compass for curriculum and program planning. It is the challenge and struggle to make this mission statement come alive—albeit incomplete and imperfectly—that makes the school an exciting place.  It invigorates both faculty and students knowing that we are preserving and carrying forward the social reform philosophy upon which professional social work was founded, and which is vital to its future.  We seek to help students build upon their sense of personal and social responsibility, taking the perspective of others seriously, grounding their actions in ethical considerations, and encouraging their ability to contribute to society.
