Greetings and welcome to the UNC Wilmington School of Social Work

The School of Social Work prepares students to make a difference in the world through:

  • direct practice with individuals, couples, families, and communities;
  • policy analysis and advocacy; and
  • social work research.

Our students are trained to help people discover and build upon their resources and strengths, and those in their environment, to meet the challenges of poverty, discrimination, health and mental health issues, and other difficult life situations. UNCW social work graduates are working in social service, health, and mental health agencies in Southeast North Carolina, throughout the state, and across the country.

UNCW School of Social Work Statement of Values (2013)

The faculty of the School of Social Work supports all professional values and ethics articulated by the National Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics. Further, we believe in…

  • …collaborative interprofessional and intraprofessional teaching, practice, and research.

  • …an environment that is creative, fun, collegial, and supports community members who are passionate and committed to learning, teaching, and service.
  • …continuously enhancing the quality of the School and faculty through mentoring, transparency, and creative and innovative engagement.
  • …an appreciation of the holistic nature of diversity.
