Welcome to the IU School of Social Work!

The following mission statement was adopted by the School Assembly on April 4, 2008.  In shaping its curriculum, the BSW program draws on the intent and concepts of the mission.

 Vision Statement:  An exemplary university and community-based collaboration advancing social and economic justice, empowerment, and human well-being in a changing global landscape.

 Mission Statement:  The mission of the IUSSW is excellence in education, research and service to promote health, well-being, and social and economic justice in a diverse world.

As of July 1, 2007, the Division of Labor Studies merged into the School of Social Work to become the fourth academic program under the auspices of the School.  The Labor Studies Program is a system wide program, offering academic programs on six of the Indiana University campuses, and it has a social justice mission that is compatible with Social Work.

Policy on Nondiscrimination

Based on the tradition of the social work profession and consistent with Indiana University's Equal Opportunity Policy, the Indiana University School of Social Work affirms and conducts all aspects of its teaching, scholarship, and service activities without discrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, socioeconomic status, marital status, national or ethnic origin, age, religion or creed, disability, and political or sexual orientation.

The School of Social Work has a strong commitment to diversity and nondiscrimination.  Indeed, diversity is celebrated as strength.  This perspective demonstrates the composition of its faculty and student body, curriculum content, and recruitment and retention activities; by participation in university committees dealing with oppressed populations; by numerous service activities, including advocacy on behalf of the disadvantaged; and by its selection of field practicum sites.
