At our core, we are change-makers driven to transform and empower individuals, families, and communities by advocating for justice, mobilizing resiliency, and promoting equality across our one human race. This is the mission that propels us forward as we inspire and prepare tomorrow’s social work and criminal justice leaders, scholars, practitioners, and policymakers to effect positive change in the world.

The immense faculty expertise and strong community partnerships within our two schools – the Phyllis & Harvey Sandler School of Social Work and the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice – produce graduates who are prepared to make a difference. Our alumni enter the fields of social work and criminal justice fully trained to analyze, implement and evaluate criminal justice and social welfare policies and practices; address discriminatory systems and processes; provide direct services to vulnerable populations; restore justice and promote equal access to care.
