Our faculty regularly focuses on research that impacts people not only throughout the nation, but throughout the world.
The School of Social Work research develops practice and policy solutions to daunting societal problems facing marginalized populations. We celebrate that our research focuses on diverse social problems and examines issues using many different perspectives and methods. We nonetheless share common aspirations to enhance research that has measurable community and social justice impacts and that meaningfully engages communities. Given the University of Illinois prominence as one of the greatest information and technology research universities in the world, we likewise value our opportunity to be national leaders in bringing new technologies to social work research and interventions.
