From the inception of social work as a profession in the early 1900s, our College has been a leader nationally and within our own community. Our graduates amplify the voices of those who are often ignored, ensuring their safety, dignity, and quality of life.

Social Work is a natural home for the academic preparation of great leaders; graduates of our college have risen to become CEOs of Netcare, United Way, and organizations with lesser-known names but significant community impact nonetheless.

There are many opportunities for you to support the College of Social Work, and we welcome your involvement in all of them. Whether you are a donor interested in starting a scholarship to support a student, an alum who wants to volunteer for special alumni events, or a friend of the college who believes in the tremendous impact social workers make in the world, we welcome you.
