SUPPORT PRIORITIES OF THE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK ON BAYLOR GIVING DAY
The Diana R. Garland School of Social Work holds a reputation for excellence in social work higher education, producing ethically-minded social workers in a Christian context for worldwide service and leadership. Our alumni have bolstered this reputation through careers that influence policy and impact lives every day.
Over more than 50 years, social work education at Baylor University has embodied the core values of the profession: service, social justice, dignity and worth of the person, importance of human relationships, integrity, and competence. This legacy is only possible because of the support of alumni, parents, and friends.
In order to prepare social workers for the complex world in which we live, we are using the Diana R. Garland School of Social Work Excellence Fund to support these bold priorities:
RESEARCH FOR SOCIAL IMPACT - Developing compelling research agendas creating a lasting impact on a world with complex challenges.
EXPERIENTIAL AND INNOVATIVE LEARNING - Connecting students' passion to serve with experiential learning at the Waco and online campuses, illuminating solutions to significant social challenges.
EQUITY AND INCLUSION - Programs and resources for education related to anti-oppressive practices and the empowerment of all people.
