The Binghamton University Department of Social Work trains competent and effective social workers in an empowering, inclusive environment. Our mission is to prepare social workers for autonomous, knowledge-based, advanced generalist practice within an integrated community of scholars, practitioners and learners. We help students acquire a broad base of knowledge and skills to address the needs of individuals, groups, families, organizations and communities. We are committed to education that furthers social and economic justice, as well as to developing professional social workers who will become leaders in a complex, multicultural society.
As a part of this mission, the department provides continuing education programming to faculty, staff, alumni and community members who are licensed social workers. The department seeks to assist licensed social workers in remaining connected with the values of the profession; in learning new theories, concepts, practices and skills; and in networking with other social workers.
