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. Access these links for the latest UW FAQs and Novel coronavirus & COVID-19: facts and resources page, including Back to School and Back to Work information.

School of Social Work Project Connect
In response to the critically needed support for vulnerable community members, the School developed Project Connect—a virtual “collaboratory" that offers students the opportunity to obtain valuable experience while providing services. “Project Connect reflects the range of social issues and populations that we care for, that we have a commitment and capacity to serve,” Dean Uehara, who spearheaded the initiative, said in a recent UW News story.

Student emergency fund
The School of Social Work has established a new emergency fund for students facing reduced hours or layoffs from their jobs and wondering how they will pay for rent and other expenses because of hardships created by the COVID-19 outbreak. FInd out more here.

Employee training opportunities
The School of Social Work supports professional development throughout the year. Summer is a great time to tap an array of UW training resources—many of which are free for employees—including ethics, workplace violence prevention and grants management.

How to reach social work faculty and staff
We recommend that you make virtual visits as most employees are teleworking. Please refer to the School of Social Work directory for contact information, or email your questions about operations to sswadmin@uw.edu.
