Student in MSW class

A career in social work provides the opportunity to empower and offer hope to those in need in a variety of ways. Social workers help people find solutions to problems encountered in everyday life and during life’s most difficult circumstances.  Social workers also bring about changes in social policies, social institutions, and communities to ensure that all people, regardless of status, may achieve a quality standard of living.
