Social Work Initiatives

These initiatives reflect the many ways our School, students, faculty, staff and alumni impact communities, families, children and the world. We are proud to not only shape the next generation of scholars and social workers but to recognize individuals in our School and campus community who are impacting students and our communities through their teaching, research and service.
