Mission Statement

The mission of the BSW Program in the Department of Social Work is to prepare students to become generalist social work practitioners who are adept at working with diverse populations, particularly with minority populations and individual and families living in poverty by implementing micro, mezzo, and macro level practice interventions.  We are committed to providing an academic experience that enables students to integrate and apply knowledge, values, and skills of the social work profession that are essential for promoting social and economic justice to individuals and families living in poverty, minority populations, to local and regional communities, for graduate education, and for impacting communities through evidence informed practice/scholarly research and a commitment to community service.


The program’s goals are committed to preparing students:

  1. To work with individuals and families living in poverty and minority populations
  2. To address social and economic justice issues at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels of social work practice
  3. To demonstrate knowledge, understanding, and respect for human diversity
  4. To impact upon the local and regional communities outside the university through scholarly research and/or active participation in problem solving efforts
  5. For graduate level education in social work
