As social workers and as people, the Tulane School of Social Work and its faculty stand in solidarity with marginalized and oppressed communities to resoundingly support a human environment that creates and contributes to social justice in our country and beyond.
Now more than ever before, New Orleans is a living laboratory, with social work front and center in the recovery of one of America's greatest cities. Tulane School of Social Work, the first program for social workers in the deep South, is on the ground working in partnership with numerous non-profit organizations to rebuild our city.
"My field education gave me the opportunity to apply my academic skills and philosophy in a real world environment while still enjoying the careful guidance of my professors, classmates and field supervisor. I learned to integrate my knowledge and values of community-centered work with the unique perspective of local social work professionals in practice."
Timothy van der Veken, MSW '09
"My experience at Tulane has given me a valuable learning experience both inside and outside of the classroom. The combination of class and field experience has had a profound impact on my success as a professional social worker. Thanks to my classes and field placements at Tulane, I had the knowledge and experience to make a difference in my community."
