Union Institute & University Celebrates Social Work Month 2017

March is National Social Work Month. Union Institute & University joins the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) in celebrating the profession with this year’s national campaign Social Workers STAND UP!

The rigorous Union Institute & University Bachelor of Science major in Social Work program empowers adult students to apply professional knowledge, skills, ethics, and values for generalist social work with an emphasis on social justice and social change.

The program offers a blended teaching model that combines online learning, face-to-face supervision, and videoconferencing to enhance classroom instruction and community-based field education. The program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).

Students choose UI&U’s Bachelor of Science major in Social Work program because of its proven commitment to diverse, non-traditional aged students, working professionals, and military service members seeking to enhance their educational qualifications while maintaining commitments to career, family, and community. Social work majors gain access to advanced graduate study options, professional membership, and licensure.

Union is proud to STAND UP! and to celebrate our Social Work students, faculty, staff and alumni as they enhance the well-being and basic needs of all people, especially the most vulnerable in society.
