First organized in 1974, the Social Work program was accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) in 1989 and reaffirmed in 2000 for an 8-year period. It gained full status as a separate academic department in 1994.

Resource Room

The Resource Room is designed to address the physical and psychosocial needs of students on campus to promote academic success. Hunger and food insecurity are realities students too often face during their matriculation through higher learning. In addition, other stressors like access to hygiene items, access to professional attire for internships and employment opportunities, access to infant hygiene items for parenting students and psychosocial support can impact students' academic success and retention. This resource room has been developed with these concerns in mind, as a one stop location to supplement the needs of students on campus and provide access to on- or off- campus resources or referrals as needed.
