The faculty of the School of Social Work are committed to rigorous research aimed at advancing knowledge about social work, social welfare, and intervention strategies. Faculty are highly interdisciplinary, representing the fields of economics, human development, psychology, public affairs, sociology, and social work. The School has a long history in excellence in research, ranked fourth in research productivity among Schools of Social Work by the Princeton Review’s Grouman Report.
Faculty conduct research on a wide range of social problems including child welfare and child well-being, child support, developmental disabilities, end-of-life care, homelessness, low income workers, mental health, poverty and welfare reform. These areas of inquiry are investigated across different phases of the life course and different social contexts.
