The School of Social Work recognizes the importance of diversity and globalization in line with the national Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) which has a goal to increase “international perspectives in U.S. social work education and collaboration with social work education and practice worldwide.”  The School of Social Work’s International Committee promotes and supports international social work through study abroad programs, interdisciplinary collaborations, international field internships, faculty and student exchanges, cross-national research and other international education events.

The school’s International Committee (Chair, Dr. Cal Streeter) oversees initiatives aimed at increasing the school’s international presence.
