College of Social Work

Social Change. Social Justice. Social Work.

The College of Social Work develops outstanding professionals who serve individuals, families, communities and service-oriented agencies through social change, social justice and social work.
Our graduates exemplify the passion, conviction and dedication essential to make a difference every day in the lives of others.

Every donation today to the College of Social Work Advancement Fund will provide direct scholarship support essential to any of our students. The CoSW has a number of students with high levels of need, especially first-generation students, who typically return to serve in their home communities.

The Advancement Fund is essential in supporting future social workers across the Commonwealth, the nation and the world.
