Mission Statement

The mission of the Baccalaureate Social Work (BSW) degree program at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is to prepare students for competent, generalist evidence-based practice. As generalists, graduates will have a common body of social work knowledge, values, and skills informed by the principles outlined in the NASW Code of Ethics and transferable among human service settings and population groups. Social Work faculty and students are committed to working together to engage in scholarship, continued learning, and community service to individuals from diverse backgrounds reflecting the UTC mission as a metropolitan university that serves people from varied cultural, social, and economic backgrounds.
