GSS Social Work Research

The Graduate School of Social Service (GSS) is an active research institution.  Our work spans a wide range of social work issues and populations, including aging, children and families, health, and the needs of vulnerable communities.

Our faculty's diverse research pursuits make valuable contributions to the knowledge base of social work and reinforce our school's mission of promoting human rights and social justice.  They also provide rich opportunities for our students to learn from our faculty scholars while helping to answer some of social work's most pressing questions
