The School of Social Work has maintained the prestigious Council on Social Work Education accreditation since 1973 and continues to uphold an outstanding regional reputation for its quality undergraduate program and community and regional service. The diverse curriculum provides a deep knowledge base and skill set related to social welfare, human behavior and the social environment, social work research, social policy and generalist practice—preparing students to advance social justice, economic justice and human rights on a local to global scale.
