The social work program at OLC is seeking to change the face of social work on the reservation. We are working with students and community to found social work in a vision of the future. This vision forms what we do in the program.
We do our best to create the program within the understanding that everything is inter-related and sacred. While all systems of belief are honored in the OLC Social Work Program, the guidance offered by Woope Sakowin, the seven sacred laws is foundational. What professional social work within the Lakota world looks like will take a number of years to form.
