The Columbia School of Social Work (CSSW) has been pioneering social work practices and educating social workers for over a century. The School joins rigorous, evidence-based academic theory with real-world practice. Our multidisciplinary faculty are known for their intellectual creativity and leadership in research, education and field work. Our community is committed to lifelong learning that aims to:

    • Develop leaders in social work practice and research;
    • Advance the social work profession, professional values, knowledge, and skills;
    • Enhance well-being and the promotion of human rights and social justice at the local, national, and global level through the creation of responsive social programs and policies.

    We believe that the best professional education expands your thinking and strengthens your practice. Our workshops are social by design, aimed at helping you grow your professional network while learning about contemporary issues of the profession.
