The MSW Student Handbook is provided to all new students and is the result of the contribution of administrators, faculty, staff, field instructors, community organizers, and students. It is designed to help students understand the MSW program, its structure, and its curriculum, as well as give helpful information about our policies and procedures. While every reasonable effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the content, please recognize that certain policies and procedures may change, as conditions demand.
