Overview

A social worker with baccalaureate-level training is a generalist practitioner. The generalist practitioner possesses a wide range of knowledge and competencies in order to respond to a wide range of social problems. Thus the focus is not on providing specialists in any one methodology, such as casework or group work, but rather on developing a social worker who responds on the basis of the problem to be solved.

Mission Statement

The Social Work program of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater prepares students to be exceptional professionals who facilitate change with vulnerable and diverse individuals, families, and communities and promote social justice for all.

Program Goals

Through coursework, advising, and other programming (student organization, undergraduate research, etc.), students will acquire the necessary knowledge, values, and skills to graduate as culturally competent beginning generalist social workers.

Consistent with the NASW Code of Ethics, students will demonstrate personal and professional integrity.

Through our long-standing history of collaboration with human service organizations in the region, the department will promote effective and culturally sensitive social service programs and practice.

Faculty will engage in scholarly and creative activity, especially in areas that enhance social work practice, social welfare policy, and social work education.
