This interdisciplinary faculty brings the School a wide range of knowledge and social work orientations spanning contemporary psychodynamic, psychological, and social theory perspectives and related research. Through cutting-edge research and outstanding scholarship, faculty are training the next generation of social workers, influencing public policies, and developing new alternatives to help underserved populations.
