Welcome

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 as well as the resources and strengths of 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 Southeastern North Carolina, throughout the state, and across the country.
