School of Social Work Faculty

SSW Faculty

Our 30 full-time faculty members are recognized scholars, researchers, and practitioners, committed to community engagement and mentoring relationships.  First and foremost, they are committed to teaching excellence and supporting student development.

In addition, we have over 40 adjunct faculty who bring expertise in the latest direct practice experience.  All of our faculty bring "real-world" practice experience and professional community connections to the classroom.

Many of our faculty are leaders in the profession at the regional, national, and even international levels.  Our Dean, Barbara Shank, currently serves as Board Chair of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), as President of the International Consortium on Social Development (ICSD), and as a member of the Board of the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW), among others.  We invite you to view our faculty profiles to learn more about the areas of interest, expertise, and leadership roles held by our distinguished faculty.
