The mission of the Social Work Program is to educate generalist social workers to integrate professional knowledge, values, skills and cognitive/affective processes into a holistic and competent entry-level practice.
The program stresses the importance of hearing the voices of all people, understanding common human needs, and enhancing opportunities for mental, relational, environmental, physical, and spiritual health.
