MSW Vision, Mission and Goals


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 MSW Program

The Master of Social Work is a strengths-based graduate education program that prepares students for advanced professional practice and leadership in both local and global practice contexts, with a commitment to evidence-based knowledge, critical thinking, and social justice values.


  • Prepare advanced degree social workers to assume leadership roles in clinical/mental health care and health care settings in order to meet the growing needs of the Fox Valley and beyond.
  • Prepare professional social workers to engage in activities that will contribute to the development and improvement of social policy at local, regional, state, and national levels as it pertains to culturally relevant mental health and health care services.
  • Engage in collaborative partnerships with other academic units and degree programs at UW Oshkosh, as well as with organizational entities in the Fox Valley region in order to improve community well-being.
  • Engage in teaching, research and evaluation activities that promote best practices in mental health and health care practice and encourage innovation and discovery to improve the well-being of those in need.

UWO Department of Social Work Student Handbook

UW Oshkosh Graduate Students

MSEP -- Midwest Student Exchange Program. Did you know that students from Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wisconsin can all participate in the MSEP? Students from these states can attend participating schools, such as UW Oshkosh, for 150% of in-state tuition. For undergraduates this makes attending UW Oshkosh less expensive for Illinois students than attending some Illinois state schools. The same may be true for the graduate program. Students don't need to do anything special to qualify for the "discount." It is figured into their tuition when they apply.
