Public Service & Outreach

As part of the University of Georgia, a land- and sea-grant institution, the School of Social Work has primary responsibility for preparing social work leaders for social work practice with the diverse people and communities in the state of Georgia, the region, the nation and beyond our national borders.  

Consistent with this mission is a strong emphasis on the importance of community outreach. Also known as service-learning, this involves utilizing the School's resources in helping students learn, while addressing community problems at the same time.
