College Community

The University of Utah College of Social Work, established in 1937, is a leader in social work education in the Intermountain West. The College offers students an inclusive and challenging learning environment where students are encouraged to collaborate with faculty, peers, and community partners in analyzing and resolving critical social problems.



Message From the Dean

I am honored and privileged to be the eighth dean to lead the College of Social Work in as many decades. Much has changed since the first students enrolled in 1937. Technology now impacts every aspect of the profession, services reflect the needs of our 21st century population, and annual tuition costs have climbed a bit beyond the original cost of $90. All of these differences speak to opportunity as well as to need.

The College of Social Work has continually strived to meet the demands of our changing world. Students in our undergraduate and graduate programs make use of clinical classroom training in their real-world practicum placements, our faculty and doctoral students study how people cope with pain and stress in our onsite psychophysiology lab, and generous alumni and friends create scholarships that open the doors of education for dozens of students each year. I invite you to explore our stories and discover what makes this college a leader in social work education and research.

I believe the College of Social Work is truly an inspiring place and I want to ensure that our program continues to be poised for growth for the next 80 years. I look forward to the many pathways and achievements we will embark on together.

Martell L. Teasley, PhD Dean
