Why social work?
For some it’s because social workers once helped them, and for others there’s an innate call to give back and make things better. Many will say you don't choose social work, social work chooses you.
Some of our students come to the Graduate School of Social Work straight out of undergrad: like Andrew who applied his musical talents toward developing recreational programs for underprivileged kids or Alexa who wants to work with at-risk teens.
And others arrive in search of second careers, coming to us after decades as Wall Street executives, nurses, lawyers, police officers, soldiers, and educators, seeking new ways to help people.
Our students are the heart and soul of our program. They are incredible individuals from all walks of life looking to accomplish incredible things and they come from all backgrounds and corners of the map. They draw the admiration of our faculty and go on to make exceptional contributions to their communities. It’s our privilege to educate and motivate them while they, in turn, enlighten and inspire us.
