Social Work at UAFS
The purpose of the profession of social work is the enhancement of human well-being and the alleviation of poverty and oppression. The profession is dedicated to assisting individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities to reach their full potential. Social work is particularly concerned with achieving social and economic justice for vulnerable populations while respecting and valuing human diversity.
To achieve its basic purposes, the faculty, students, staff, and agency field instructors are involved in a variety of teaching, research, and outreach activities that involve them in the lives of the university and communities around the state and at the national level. We welcome you to join us in our efforts to achieve excellence in the preparation of professional social workers.
The UAFS social work program is fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.
