The University of Michigan School of Social Work is engaged in a University-wide initiative to enhance diversity, equity, and create an inclusive climate. The faculty of the School of Social Work strive to be leaders in scholarship, education and service for socially just communities in Michigan, the United States and the world. We value:
Our contributions to social work scholarship build on values that emphasize the strengths and the interaction between the individual and the larger social and physical environment. Our faculty members draw on scientific theories that support the understanding of social challenges and then work to develop translational solutions to these challenges.
We seek faculty members whose interests and commitments fit this philosophy of the School. For more information about the University's diversity initiative visit U-M's Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion.
