Rutgers SSW Moves Up in Rankings of Nation’s Best Graduate Schools of Social Work
The Rutgers School of Social Work has climbed to #26 out of 206 in the 2012 U.S. News & World Report survey of the best graduate schools of social work. It also moved from 13th to 10th in tier ranking, a gain exceeded by only three other schools in the entire top 40.
"While the rise in our ranking provides a visible and public indication of our program's increasing strength," says acting dean Kathleen J. Pottick, "we are proud to affirm what everyone in our school knows: that we are constantly and consistently getting better and better. Every day our top-notch faculty members are contributing to the knowledge base of social work through diverse and cutting-edge research, published works in prestigious journals and presentations at national and global conferences. The faculty and other programs are supported in their missions by talented and dedicated staff. Finally, our alumni are employed as leaders in agencies across the country. We look forward to the future, as we build upon the past, so that the school will continue to thrive."
The rankings are based on a survey sent in the fall of 2011 to administrators in all schools accredited by the Council on Social Work Education.
