A Community of Social Work Scholars
The Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW) is home to a courageous community of faculty members whose work is advancing social justice and the practice of social work. From probing policy questions to conducting randomized controlled trials, we conduct science for action.
Our faculty are just as committed to teaching as they are to scholarship — mentoring and collaborating with students as they prepare them for careers in social work practice, research and education. Students learn from full-time faculty members who are leaders in the field, and they also learn from adjunct instructors who are leaders in the community and who bring real-time, real-world experience to the classroom.
Get to know us! Find contact information for full-time faculty members, learn more about their current research and scholarship activities, and connect.

At GSSW, the research opportunities are countless, as are many other opportunities — travel, internships, jobs and more. The relationships you begin to build with faculty are irreplaceable. The mentorship opportunity alone should persuade any student to attend GSSW.
