The mission of Indiana Wesleyan University’s Social Work program is to equip students to enhance human well- being and to meet basic human needs. We believe that people are impacted by their environment. Our students gain first-hand knowledge regarding individuals, families, groups, communities, and organizations in order to better understand this impact. Graduates will be prepared for entry-level, generalist social work practice through a variety of classroom, volunteer, and field experiences.
