Welcome to the Grace Abbott School of Social Work
I am pleased to welcome you to the Grace Abbott School of Social Work at UNO. Accredited by the Council for Social Work Education, we offer a Bachelor of Science in Social Work degree, a Masters of Social Work degree, and three dual degree programs including a Masters in Criminology and Criminal Justice (MSW/CRCJ), Masters in Public Administration (MSW/MPA), and Masters in Public Health in conjunction with the University of Nebraska Medical Center (MSW/MPH). With an established off campus MSW program taught at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, we work hard to meet the needs of students living outside the Omaha metropolitan area.
Our faculty and students value diversity in academic, research and community endeavors and we recognize the importance of serving both the urban and rural communities with exceptional education of social workers. Many of our undergraduate and graduate courses include a Service Learning format, and students often meet at local agencies and participate in community programs.
Our faculty are engaged in numerous national, regional and community boards and agencies, ranging from the Association of Social Work Boards to National Alliance for Mental Illness to the Nebraska Children’s Home Society, The Omaha Hoarding Task Force, to InCommon and neighborhood councils, and many others. In addition, the School also includes the STEPS program, the program evaluation component for programs serving families and children in poverty.
We welcome potential and current students, alumni, community partners and friends of the Grace Abbott School of Social Work, and hope you will visit our offices, attend one of our community events, and collaborate with us in the semesters ahead.
