Welcome to the Center for International Social Work
The Center for International Social Work (CISW) aims to be a leader in responding to the global interdependence which has brought increased awareness to shared human problems across the globe. CISW highlights the unique strengths that the social work perspective provides to discussions and actions around remediating global challenges such as poverty, unemployment, homelessness, children deprived of parental care, HIV/AIDS, human trafficking, disability, family violence, juvenile and adult crime, and imprisonment. Social workers can play a key role in global actions around social justice, policy development and community interventions. CISW will address these areas through events and workshops, course offerings, fostering connections with other international social work organizations and research.
