Social Work Club

 

The Social Work club is open to all students, regardless of major. General information on the social work club can be found here.

The mission of the social work profession is rooted in a set of core values. These core values, embraced by social workers throughout the profession's history, are the foundation of social work's unique purpose and perspective. Core values, and the ethical principles that flow from them, must be balanced within the context and complexity of the human experience.

March is National Social Work Month
