Social Work

Founded on the principles of social justice and human rights, social work supports the well-being of society’s most vulnerable individuals. Groups and communities most exposed to issues of discrimination, poverty, and violence often need special assistance, and social workers provide this support on a case-by-case basis. Ultimately, practitioners aim to empower the people they work with to become self-sufficient, drawing on their community and personal resources to meet their needs. In a time of polarizing social tensions, social work is becoming an increasingly relevant and important discipline.
