BSW Vision, Mission & Goals

Vision

The vision of this Department reflects a central belief that its curriculum be guided by the principle of doing what is right and just — teaching students to willingly accept the professional responsibility to act as the "heart and conscience" of the profession in their respective communities or as part of the profession-at-large, to advocate on  behalf of those who suffer discrimination, devaluing and oppression. The Department's mission and goals stem from its vision.

Mission of the Department of Social Work

The Department of Social Work offers a strengths based educational program that guides and prepares Social Work students to be caring professionals with a commitment to knowledge, critical thinking, social justice values and practice skills.

BSW Goals

  • Graduate competent (based on CSWE Foundation Competencies and Practice Behaviors) BSW level social work professionals
  • Prepare graduates for entry-level employment in generalist social work practice positions
  • Prepare students for entry into graduate school and stimulate engagement in regional professional development activities
  • Prepare students for state/national examination for certification as entry-level social workers

 

Closed Class/Wait List Policy

Information for BSW students seeking entry into closed classes

Students who are not able to enroll in SW 167, SW 220 and/or SW 298 will be placed on a

wait list that is maintained in the Department of Social Work Main Office, Swart Hall 230. If a

student wants to enroll in a closed section of the above classes, s/he will need to contact a Social

Work Advisor prior to being placed on the wait list.  Students with the last name A-R should

contact Colleen Hansen, hansenc@ uwosh.edu. Students with the last name S-Z should contact

Cornelia Gordon-Hempe, gordonh@uwosh.edu.  Visit the Social Work office or call

920.424.1419 with additional questions. Social Work students unable to enroll in required pre-

requisites during the academic year will be given priority enrollment for online summer sections

(SW 167 and SW 220). Students are encouraged to meet with a Social Work Advisor in order to

ensure they are on-track to apply to the BSW Program during the Spring semester.

 

All 300 and 400 level Social Work courses are restricted to Social Work majors accepted into the

BSW degree program. All students accepted into the program will have a seat in these classes. If

a desired section/grouping is full at the time of registration, students are advised to seek out a

peer who is willing to switch sections. Class sizes are fixed in accordance with accreditation

policy best practices.

Curriculum Updates

Attention Pre-Social Work Majors! If you are planning on enrolling in SW 167 and SW 220 for the 2015-2016 academic year, please be aware that we will only be offering ONE section of each class in the fall, ONE section of each class in the spring, and an online SUMMER option for both courses.

This is a deviation from our usual offering of two sections each of SW 167 and SW 220 in both fall and spring.

Please feel free to contact the Department or your Social Work Advisor if you have questions in this regard.
