The School of Social Work is committed to eliminating social, political and economic injustices for poor and oppressed populations and advancing the quality of life for all. Our faculty are committed to fostering societal transformation through education that emphasizes solutions and action; research that generates evidence-based strategies to resolve problems at local, national, and global levels; and public service that shares this knowledge with a wider audience. In all of our work, we closely partner with communities, agencies and organizations to ensure that the needs of our constituents are represented and met. 

In addition to being active researchers, our faculty provide service to individuals and the broader community, both local and global.

The School of Social Work's research strengths include health disparities, family support, substance abuse, HIV/AIDS and more.
