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.
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.
"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."

"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."
