Mission Statement

Mission

The mission of the Department of Social Work is to prepare professional social workers to be anti-oppressive, socially just agents of change who promote well-being in urban settings. As an advanced generalist program with a focus on urban communities, the department will teach and create collaborative learning experiences with students.

Focus

Urban settings describe communities with densely populated areas and a vast array of subcultures. Utilizing a lens that espouses an intersectional, trauma-informed, collaborative perspective, the department celebrates a strengths-based inclusive identity, emphasized by the shared experiences of community, culture and location.

Accreditation

The MSW program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.

Clubs and Societies
