Director's Welcome

Dear Students;

Welcome to the School of Social Work at Texas State University. During the past 4 decades we have educated and prepared social workers to address the complexities and grand challenges facing our society. Our school motto “Leadership for Change” lives through the actions of our alumni who confront and seek solutions daily to national and international injustice. Our faculty continue to explore ways to enhance your learning experience while actively participating in research. Whether you are a BSW student, on-ground MSW, or an online graduate student you will find an engaged faculty which bring an array of experiences and diversity to our school. All of our faculty are fully licensed offering you the opportunity to learn from their extensive practice skills and knowledge.

As a School of Social Work we are committed to our mission of preparing students to work with vulnerable populations both locally and globally. We are aligned with the university’s mission of serving the educational needs of the diverse population of Texas and the world by providing our students the opportunity to study abroad. As a professional social worker you will be called upon to have an impact and find solutions to some of the most complex issues in the world and it is apparent that today more than ever, we need talented individuals who are committed to the profession and its values.

Together we will achieve success and ensure that our school becomes the vanguard of solving and addressing social issues that impact our communities while ensuring educational access and excellence.

Thank you for visiting our web site and please make certain to stop by the School of Social Work!

Jose E. Coll, Ph.D.
