Dean's Welcome

Welcome. I have the great privilege of serving as the dean of Rutgers School of Social Work, a dynamic institution that trains passionate, committed students to become leaders who serve society in policy, academic, clinical, and corporate settings.

Our educational programs offer impressive quality and great variety, as do our incredibly accomplished and well-knwon faculty members.  In addition, our Institute and Centers remain engaged in the kind of integrative research and practice work that the profession hungers for and needs.

Thanks to the depth of our relationships both within the academic community and the world at large, our faculty and students present a force for good at local, state, national, and global arenas. If you are a prospective student, I invited you to explore our programs and offerings. Read about our good works and think about how you, too, can make a positive difference in your world.

Together, we are partnering for change—won’t you join us?
