Founded in 1942, the UT College of Social Work has a long history of facing challenges with courage, confidence and compassion.

Now, perhaps more than ever before, the College’s alumni and friends are bringing these values to a world in crisis.

In a story on our website, we reported on our social work alumni serving in the front lines of the pandemic.

These stories make us proud. They also illustrate the vital importance of social work education.  The need for professional social workers has never been greater.

The support of our alumni and friends is essential to our mission. There are many ways to give. A gift to the College Fund for Social Work provides scholarships, helps us to recruit and retain outstanding faculty, and allows us to respond to immediate needs like the impact of the pandemic on our students. Alumni of our Nashville program may wish to give to the College of Social Work Nashville fund. Our giving page offers a variety of options.

Every gift, large or small, makes a difference. Please help us to build on our tradition of excellence in social work education and to make that education possible for the next generation of social workers.

Thank you, and go Vols!
