In light of the Supreme Court’s decisions regarding affirmative action, the University of Washington School of Social Work remains firmly committed to creating opportunity and expanding access to world-class social work education for students from all backgrounds.


The School is also grounded in our commitment to racial, economic, gender, and social justice informed by and for those at the social margins of our local, national, and global communities. Through this mission, we will continue to work to create an environment of opportunity and belonging for all our students.
