Combining professional experience, scholarship, and research, our faculty develop innovative programs and approaches, provide critical insight into the profession, and develop teaching materials that are used widely in social work education. UConn Social Work faculty serve as presenters at national and international conferences. They are widely published; hold leadership positions, serve on editorial boards and as committee members on regional and national peer review committees for granting agencies, journal publishers, and University, national and international meetings. Involved in a wide range of service activities in professional social work organizations and in the community at both the local and national levels, our faculty hold leadership positions as officers and board members of professional organizations; and engage in the development and dissemination of research.
In addition to our full-time faculty, adjuncts are hired to teach on a limited basis. They are selected for their expertise, teaching experience, and ability to use practice experience to inform their teaching.
