Promoting Social & Economic Justice

The Social Work Program prepares students for entry-level professional positions in social work. This includes preparing graduates of the program primarily for:

  • an urban population,
  • the promotion of social and economic justice,
  • to respond to diversity and oppression, and
  • to serve populations-at-risk.

Additionally, the program provides leadership and a reservoir of social work professionals for the region.
