Welcome to the World of Social Work
We have 13 full-time faculty members teaching in both undergraduate and graduate programs. Our relationships to the Central Minnesota community include internships, group and volunteer experiences, and other professional collaborations.
The mission of the Department of Social Work at St. Cloud State University is to use an anti-oppression lens, with a focus on race, class and gender, to inform both its educational environment and educational programs. Faculty, staff and students commit to an experiential and transformative educational process that will challenge them to think critically and analyze systemic inequalities in the United States and the world. This process will prepare professional social workers to work as change agents in a diverse world.
