The mission of the School of Social Work is to develop and disseminate knowledge through social work research, education, and training that promotes social and economic justice and strengthens individual, family, and community well-being in this diverse and increasingly global environment of New Jersey and beyond.
The school offers classes on Rutgers' three regional campuses in Camden, Newark, and New Brunswick. The Office of the Dean is located at 536 George Street, on the university's historic New Brunswick Campus. Each campus is close to major highways and rail systems and within easy commuting distance of New York City and Philadelphia.
