School of Social Work COVID-19 Information & Resources

The School of Social Work developed these pages to provide resources and tools to help our faculty, staff and students stay informed and remain productive during the COVID-19 outbreak. We hope this information will help our social work community continue their daily activities as effectively, efficiently and safely as possible, whether that includes teaching, research, service or learning. 

UW moves to online instruction through June 12
All classes and instruction will be offered remotely for the spring quarter, which will run as scheduled, March 30 – June 12. The University has chosen this course of action to reduce uncertainty and anxiety and to establish a reliable, consistent and high-quality method of instruction. We recognize that the loss of in-person community and remote learning can feel socially isolating, and we encourage you to reach out and stay connected. For the latest UW updates and FAQs, go to UW novel coronavirus & COVID-19: facts and resources.

How to connect with School faculty and staff
The School is delivering teaching, administrative and student-support services remotely. Faculty, staff and students may access the building, which is closed to the public, with their Husky card for mission-critical activities. We recommend virtual visits as most employees are teleworking. Please refer to the School of Social Work directory for contact information. If you have questions about current operations, send an email to sswadmin@uw.edu.

If you experience or witness acts of discrimination
The social work profession is grounded in equity, compassion and science, and our community stands strong for social justice. We've created a page with information about reporting procedures at the University of Washington if you experience or witness discrimination. For more information, go here.
