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.
