Where innovation drives change

At the UW School of Social Work, we are in the business of turning powerful new ideas into lasting social change. We have been developing and testing the science needed to transform communities and improve lives for decades. Today, our innovation-to-impact model informs, drives and strengthens everything we do.

Learning that values diversity, teaching recognized for excellence, and research that sparks real change: these are the hallmarks of our School and the mainstays of an advanced social work practice that is critical to solving the pressing social issues of our day.
