"I am grateful that I received the opportunity to attend the Tulane University School of Social Work program. The program has enabled me with skills to be a successful social worker that can effectively advocate for marginalized communities and the ability to apply clinical interventions. Hence, the professors, field supervisors, faculty and staff have contributed to my personal and professional growth." Nia Nicks, MSW '17

"The class sizes are small enough where you get to know everyone but large enough to hear diversity of opinion and critical thinking. I experienced a health crisis during graduate school and received top-notch healthcare and incredible support from the professors and my fellow students. Tulane and the City of New Orleans have helped me to become a better version of myself." Tammy Zelten, MSW '17
