Is a career in Social Work for you? Social workers help people deal with their relationships with others; solve their personal, family, and community problems; and grow and develop by learning to cope with or shape the social and environmental forces affecting daily life.
Social work is a profession for those with a spark of idealism, a belief in social justice, and a natural love of working with people. Social work offers the chance to work with and for people of all kinds: rich or poor, white or black, young or old, in hospitals, at home, or at work. For more information about "What is Social Work," our Student Handbook or our accreditation just follow the links.
If you have any questions about our program or how to apply please feel free to contact our Program Coordinator, Janice Dinkel, at 785-532-4980 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Attention Social Work Students!
Do you need a writing tutor? Would you simply like a second set of eyes to view your paper before you submit it? Come with something to work on. Feel free to bring a past assignment or a writing sample. During the following allotted times, senior social work students will be available to offer input for professional writing. No appointments necessary.
