The School of Social Work at Portland State University is Oregon’s #1 social work program, as the oldest, largest and only public social work higher education program in the state.

Founded by the Oregon Legislature in 1962 to serve the entire state’s social work education needs, the program serves over 1,000 students each year in Portland, Ashland, Bend, Eugene and Salem, and now online.  

Its nationally recognized research and workforce development centers are helping to define the future of social work and human services practice and generate $10 million in research funding for Portland State each year.
