Advancing the Science and Theory of Helping

Forerunners in their respective fields, faculty members at the National Catholic School of Social Service are vital in ensuring students are professionally prepared to go into the world and help those oppressed, marginalized, victimized, and dismissed by society.

Our teaching staff seeks to advance the science and philosophy of helping, which grounds students in theory and practice beyond volunteerism, and provides the education and skills to do social work as a professional. Our faculty-developed Consortium of Catholic Social Teaching promotes social justice research with three major centers: the Center for the Promotion of Health and Mental Health Well Being; the Center for the Advancement of Children, Youth and Families; and Catholics for Family Peace.
