The Western Michigan University School of Social Work is a research-driven professional program that works closely with students and the community, focusing on social change, social justice and service transformation. Its programs stress the need to:
- Recognize and fight discrimination in its many forms,
- Speak out against injustice, and
- Promote human rights and a more equitable distribution of resources and power.
The school seeks to create a learning environment that is responsive to students' professional development, promoting community and a sense of individual and collective responsibility among and between students. Meaningful interaction among students, faculty and field instructors supports self-examination, expression and innovation.
