Students

Your career planning should begin the day you're admitted to the Crown Family School. We have our own Office of Career that offers personalized student resources, training workshops and networking events.

The Crown Family School is one of the few graduate schools of social work with its own Office of Career and Leadership Development, and we encourage you to think of career preparation as an integral part of the curriculum.
