Welcome to the Department of Social Work
The Department of Social Work at Western Connecticut State University, in keeping with the Mission of the University, seeks to educate a diversified student body, and serves as an accessible, responsive, and creative intellectual resource.
The Department of Social Work provides a quality of education that prepares informed, culturally sensitive, skilled generalist social workers, who will provide services that promote and strengthen the well-being of individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities, and that are consistent with the values and ethics of the profession.
The program operates dynamically in the context of the broad liberal arts education and the particular social service needs of the region.
