Welcome to the School of Social Welfare

The School of Social Welfare's programs of education and research reflect a core commitment to our mission of promoting social justice. We prepare students to become professional social workers, devoted to bringing about a humane and just society for everyone

2015 School of Social Welfare Advocacy Day

The theme of Advocacy Day 2015 is Gender Equality: a Call to Action!  Our goal is to inspire and prepare our students to grapple with the universal need to work to challenge sexism using legislative advocacy, social activism, and social and organizational change. In addition to sensitizing the students, we are inviting leaders to teach students about grassroots social change techniques including how to influence the political process and successfully organize community and union efforts.
