GSSW Institutes and Centers

Increasing Capacity for Impact

The Graduate School of Social Work is home to five institutes that engage communities locally, nationally and internationally to develop solutions across a range of practice areas including youth development, homelessness, poverty, family systems and human-animal connection. Students have the opportunity to work directly with institutes and centers throughout their education through field internship placements or research assistance. Governmental and community partners have the opportunity to work with faculty to implement and evaluate their policies, programs and initiatives, increasing their capacity for impact.
