Be of Service

For some people, justice, inclusion, compassion, and fairness are more than just words — they constitute a way of being — a summons to be of service in a world that urgently needs our help.

At the UNE School of Social Work, we are committed to answering that summons.

Our relationship-based, experiential learning philosophy is focused on transforming values into action. We’ll give you the experience and the knowledge you need in order to have a tangible, positive effect on the world you live in. You’ll go out into the world with the tools to empower and comfort individuals, find solutions to systemic problems, and build strong, caring communities.


The University of New England School of Social Work envisions a world where social workers are at the forefront of advocating with individuals and communities for human dignity and social inclusion by mobilizing efforts to end inequities, exploitation, and violence.


The mission of the School of Social Work is to provide transformative and collaborative learning that embraces the values of social inclusion and promotes enhanced quality of life for individuals and communities.
