OUR MISSION

The Social Work Program is designed to build upon the University's commitment to provide an education to a population that is diverse in age, culture, language, and ethnic background. The diverse multicultural and multilingual populations of this rural area underscore the importance of understanding, addressing, and overcoming the mechanisms of individual and institutional discrimination and the inequalities that result. The Code of Ethics of the National Association of Social Workers provides a framework and guide for the obligations and practice for participants.

Given the program's context, it is the mission of the School to prepare students for culturally-competent generalist practice and to promote social and economic justice on behalf of the peoples of the Southwest region. The program believes in the promise of every student.
