Choosing to be a Social Worker
Papakolea Timeline

Welcome to the School of Social Work

We are delighted that you are interested in joining our Social Work community. The profession of social work is about change and innovation, and doing so from a time-tested base of knowledge, values and skills. Social workers have compassion for the needs of all people and a passion to influence and change unjust and unresponsive systems. In our rapidly diversifying world, social workers must reach out beyond their own comfort zones to help those in need – the reason why our area of concentration, Culturally-Competent Advanced Generalist, is so appropriate for the 21st century. The MSW emphasis is on Advanced Generalist practice, while the BSW program concentrates on the Generalist model of practice. Both programs aspire to prepare the profession’s future leaders and scholars.

We hope that you will choose to be among them.
