School of Social Work

With 28.9 percent growth over the past five years in the number of students enrolled in the School of Social Work, the need for student scholarships has also increased. Students in the School of Social Work learn and train to help their clients in the face of adversity, including services such as patient education, end-of-life planning, substance abuse treatment, crisis intervention, mental health counseling, and employee assistance, among others. Trained social workers have many career opportunities to enrich the community through their role as dedicated members of an essential “helping profession.” The School of Social Work commits to raising at least $1 million toward endowed student scholarships for the best, brightest, and deserving students.

The School of Social Work also commits to raising at least $1 million toward endowed faculty support to provide world-class education to our students. Our outstanding faculty members and a solid curriculum prepare graduates for faculty positions, research and practice careers, and to be proficient citizens. It is our responsibility to support the faculty in their pursuit of the University’s mission of teaching, research, and service.
