|Description of Work Unit||
Throughout its history, the School of Social Work at Colorado State University has made a continuous effort to develop and maintain a program that is responsive to three distinct, but related, interests:
The vision of the School of Social Work is to advance social, environmental, and economic justice, promote equity and equality, alleviate oppression, and enhance human health and well-being across local and global community systems. The mission of the School of Social Work is to provide exemplary education, applied research, and transformative outreach toward the accomplishment of our vision.
The Social Work Research Center (SWRC) is a central part of the School of Social Work. The mission of SWRC is to create university-practice partnerships that bridge the gap between research and practice, transform the child well-being landscape, and strengthen families. Our portfolio includes research and evaluation in child maltreatment prevention, child well-being, youth development, juvenile justice, family functioning, human trafficking, behavioral health, social justice, health equity, and knowledge translation. Established in 2004, SWRC has advanced the child welfare field in Colorado in demonstrable ways, and is uniquely positioned to promote evidenced-based research, practice, and policy in the health and human services domains.
