The faculty and staff of the School of Social Work at Radford University believe that the highest quality of social work education builds on the values and ethics of the profession. We fully integrate cultural humility and strive to promote inclusion and social justice at all system levels, locally and globally. We utilize theory to guide our understanding of client systems in the socially constructed environment. Our students graduate with strong advocacy and practice skills, use evidence-based models, and have the ability to evaluate their own practice.
The School of Social Work prepares social work professionals who are capable of adapting their practice to meet the needs of client systems. The program context comprises a dynamic mix of small cities and rural settings. We build and maintain partnerships with the surrounding communities that are dually focused on education and service. The signature pedagogy of the School is field where course work and practice are integrated.
