Extractions: The School's Nondiscrimination Policy About the School The School of Social Work, established in 1965 as part of the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, became part of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 1975. The School began as a graduate program, the only MSW program in the state. Our BSW program, now in candidacy for accreditation by the Council on Social Work Education, began in 1998. The School's mission is "to prepare practitioners who will empower people and communities to meet the challenges of poverty, social and economic injustice, urbanization, and rural isolation, and who will serve oppressed and vulnerable people." The School pursues this mission through providing undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education, through the engagement of faculty and students in community service, and through adding to the practice knowledge of the profession. In support of our mission, we see the School, its faculty, and its students as an important resource to the communities where we offer our program and to the state as a whole. Impelled by our profession's commitment to make social institutions more humane, we seek opportunities to collaborate with public human and community service systems. Current examples include our participation in the Partnership for Public Child Welfare, a major child welfare project in DCFS Areas III and VI, the Hispanic University-Community Partnership project, and the work of MidSOUTH Center on preservice and inservice training for public child welfare workers and supervisors.

A loan is money provided by a bank, the college, or the government, which must be paid back with interest.
