"An Unsettling Profile": Research in Action
In 2009, the Coalition of Communities of Color partnered with SSW faculty Ann Curry Stevens to create a community-based participatory research project into the lived realities of communities of color in Multnomah County.
In September, 1962, the first class of MSW students at Portland State University began their academic careers. Today the PSU School of Social Work is ranked in the top 25% of social work programs nationally. We've graduated over 5,000 students with degrees at the graduate and undergraduate levels and every year we prepare students for careers in human services, education, criminal justice, and special education.
This year we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the SSW, and the many pathways taken by our students, faculty, and community members on their journey. Learn more about the history of the SSW and our 50th Anniversary Celebration by clicking here.
