Our school is home to a diverse group of students, faculty, staff and alumni.

If you’re looking for a supportive, enriching community in which to gain the skills and perspectives that will prepare you for the honorable, challenging and rewarding field  of social work, check us out.

We offer a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree and a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree option, which includes a traditional two-year plan of study or the advanced standing, one-year course of study. 

I’m excited to partner with our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the larger community to envision our big picture and generate the bigger ideas that will help us advance our School of Social Work forward and contribute to expanding the workforce of equity minded social work practitioners, advocates, healers, and leaders.
