1 Master of Social Work: Grace Abbott School of Social Work, College of Public Affairs & Community Service Vision Statement The mission of the Grace Abbott School of Social Work at the University of Nebraska at Omaha is to educate students to become highly qualified social workers who serve people of all ages and influence the systems that affect them; to advance knowledge through teaching and research; and to engage with diverse communities to promote socially just societies. The primary purpose of the social work profession is to enhance human well-being. Social workers help to meet the basic human needs of all people and empower those who are vulnerable, oppressed, or affected by poverty. The social work profession was founded on a set of core principles that still guide its unique purpose and perspective today: Service Social justice Dignity and worth of the person Importance of human relationships Integrity Competence Social Work maintains a dual focus on individual well-being in a social context and on the betterment of society. Social workers seek to enhance the capacity of people to address their own needs, helping people to identify and address the environmental forces that create and contribute to problems in living. For over 100 years, social workers have worked to promote social justice and social change with and on behalf of individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities, helping millions of people to challenge their circumstances and change their lives, and promoting the responsiveness of organizations, communities, and other social institutions to individuals' needs and social problems. Social workers are sensitive to cultural and ethnic diversity and strive to end discrimination, oppression, poverty, and other forms of social injustice. These activities may be in the form of direct practice, community organizing, supervision, consultation, administration, advocacy, social and political action, policy development and implementation, education, research and evaluation.

Students must enroll in a minimum of two courses (6 hours) per semester, excluding summer semesters.
