Community Outreach at the School of Social Work
Historically, the University of Maryland has contributed its expertise and talent to the surrounding communities. Social work faculty, staff, and students participate in community outreach programs and research projects that fulfill a wide range of social needs. For social work students in particular, the surrounding communities become extensions of classroom learning. Students can choose from a long list of field placements in urban, suburban, and rural areas, where they assist children, adults, and the elderly.
