Mission Statement

The Adelphi University School of Social Work is a student-centered and engaged community that prepares reflective practitioners, leaders, scholars, and educators to work in collaboration with global and diverse communities in solving complex problems and producing knowledge. We prepare BSW, MSW, and doctoral students to be lifelong learners for effective, ethical, antiracist and anti-oppressive practice striving for social justice and human rights for a global and diverse society.

Exploring Racism

In an innovative approach to our annual social action initiative spanning three months, 180 graduate and undergraduate social work students pioneered new efforts to address racial justice during Spring 2021. Small groups created online projects highlighting the effects of race and racism on criminal justice, health, housing inequities and race in the media, and also developed strategies to address these issues.

Faculty with Exceptional Experience in Social Work Teaching and Practice

We congratulate our newly promoted senior adjunct or part-time faculty members, whose decades of expertise in the field and in the classroom benefit our undergraduate and graduate students.

The School of Social Work has published the first edition of The Adelphi Advocate, "Changing Social Work One Article at a Time," featuring the scholarship of social work students while also promoting advocacy, social change and policy reform.
