When you invest in the lives of Social Work students, you are investing in the people uniquely equipped to address social injustice and the individuals and families who suffer as a consequence. Social workers address the systems at the root of social ills and not just the symptoms of it. Social work students come to Baylor for their education because the majority of them feel called to live out the gospel message of "loving God and loving neighbor." They know that at Baylor, with its intentional integration of faith and practice, their degree will prepare them professionally and holistically.
"Baylor's SSW has taught me to go out in this broken world and love in practical and effective ways that create change for good."
- Brooke Rasco, BSW/MSW
"This scholarship isn't just touching my life, it touches the children in the orphanage in Kenya, my Baylor Buddy who I mentor, the people in the bereavement group I co-lead-all the people I am serving."
- Katie Robinson, BSW
"I received a scholarship -- without which this story would have never happened -- you have made my journey possible. I am going back to my home country, Thailand, to work with people in meaningful and helpful ways."
- Walai Jantawibon, MSW, first generation Chinese raised in Thailand
If you would like to learn more about how you can support the School, its students and work, please give me a call. I'd love to tell you the School's story and learn about your interests. There are so many ways to help our students realize their calling to make life better, one person or one system at a time.
