Our Leadership

Leading by example.

Students are our top priority. That sentiment comes directly from our Dean, Dr. Nancy Gallina, and is embodied every day by GSSW’s faculty members and administrators.

We know you want to make a positive difference in other peoples’ lives. That’s why you’ve followed the calling of social work. As social workers ourselves, we respect that commitment and are here for you in the classroom, out in the field, and after graduation. And it’s why we work every day to prepare you to be great social workers - both text-smart and obstacle-tested.

This is our passion. We are not merely educators and administrators. We’re out there in neighborhoods and communities every day trying to make a difference, like you.
