Faculty & Research

Quality education begins with quality teachers. The SSW faculty will help you prepare professionally because they are successful professionals themselves — and because they are dedicated to teaching and mentoring students.

SSW professors are actively engaged as clinicians, consultants, educators, researchers, and community leaders. Their research, scholarship, and experience cover a wide range of issues, including child welfare, pediatric chronic illness, gerontology, health care disparities, trauma, HIV/AIDS, refugees, family bereavement, racism and oppression, social work leadership, evidence-based practice, and social policy in the United States and around the world.
