IMPORTANT NOTE TO CURRENT AND POTENTIAL SOCIAL WORK STUDENTS:

To begin the social work sequence you need to take Sowk 203 which is offered ONLY IN THE SPRING SEMESTER each year. You should organize your schedule so you have most of the OLC Core done by the time you are ready to enter the junior year. Contact Kathryn Kidd, Chairperson, for a program of study based on courses you have taken and courses you should take.

Vision Statement

In line with the OLC vision, the Department of Social Work seeks to educate students to be part of social change processes that more equitably distribute scarce economic and social resources as part of making life better for members of the Oglala Lakota People on the Pine Ridge Reservation.

Mission Statement

The Department of Social Work's mission is to facilitate students to develop the necessary ethics, skills and knowledge to (1) enter beginning professional social work practice, and (2) over time creatively move into leadership roles within tribal, state, and federal organizations that focus on the health and well-being of the Lakota people.

If you have any questions or need more information, please don't hesitate to email or call.
