The School of Social Work is committed to a University-wide initiative that aims to enhance social justice, antiracism, diversity, equity, and create an inclusive climate.

Michigan Social Work faculty members strive to be leaders in scholarship, education, and service for socially just communities in Michigan, the United States, and across the world. They respond to social challenges in this highly politicized and technologized world by supporting scholarly and academic excellence; equity in education, health and social services; and they draw on scientific and critical theories that support the understanding of social challenges and then work to develop translational solutions to these challenges. We seek new faculty members whose interests and commitments fit this philosophy. For more information about the University's diversity initiative please visit:
