School of Social Work Faculty & Staff

The faculty members of the UNCW School of Social Work are widely engaged in collaborative work related to research, program development and evaluation, and curriculum development. These regional and national collaborations, combined with the diverse and extensive social work educational backgrounds of our faculty, allow a broad sense of the character of social work education nationally and the specific characteristics of the best of those programs.
