To Our School of Social Work Community

To maintain the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic period, the School of Social Work is following university protocol related to COVID-19. Please visit UNLV’s Coronavirus Updates for the latest information. For specific course information, please contact your instructor.

As future leaders, we encourage you to nurture your health and well-being so you may care for the health and safety of others. There is no greater opportunity than this moment for all of us to positively impact our communities by practicing social distancing and other public health precautions.

As a student, you will be prepared to work in a variety of settings, including child welfare, mental health, criminal and juvenile justice, gerontology, domestic violence, health care, community development, policy practice, and research. If you are concerned with matters of social justice and want to make a difference in peoples' lives and your communities, we invite you to consider the social work profession as a rewarding and valuable career.
