The vision of the Diana R. Garland School of Social Work is to equip our graduates for effective service and leadership and to conduct research that addresses both human crises and long-term, complex social problems locally and globally.
Through research and initiatives, we are helping to find solutions to a world of challenges. From working to aid congregations in ministering to their communities to developing resources that will contribute to health aging, we are continuously striving to make the world a better place for generations to come!
Because the field of social work is so broad and can touch everywhere across the lifespan and life experience, research at the Garland School of Social Work does the same. As Baylor University worked to reach Tier 1 Research status, the GSSW conducted (and continues to conduct) meaningful, practical research in support of this goal. Our faculty and students undertake research projects side by side, and the result is a full range of practical resources for serving clients, serving entire populations, educating future social workers and so much more.
