Social Work in an Unprecedented Time
(A letter from the major social work organizations)


The Whitney M. Young Jr. School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University (CAU) advances the ideals of economic and social justice, through an enriched curriculum, innovative research and transformative community engagement.

With origins dating back to 1920, the School prepares culturally competent social work professionals guided by its unique legacy and Afrocentric perspective. Leveraging this convergence of culture and service, the School produces dynamic leaders in the field, who are committed to enhancing the well-being and equitable treatment of diverse individuals and communities; and driving good works for a better world. 

The School is the nation’s first accredited school of social work at a historically black college or university (HBCU) and is named in honor of its first Dean, noted social reformer and civil rights leader, Whitney M. Young Jr.
