The New York University Silver School of Social Work provides social work education from undergraduate through doctoral levels.About the schoolFounded in 1960 as the NYU School of Social Work, the school was renamed the Silver School of Social Work in honor of NYU Alumni Constance and Martin Silver who, in 2007, pledged $50 million to the School of Social Work. This is the largest known donation to a school of social work in the history of the United States.The school offers a comprehensive education in professional social work. The school has educational partnerships with over 600 public and non-profit agencies throughout the tri-state area. Students at the School of Social Work collectively provide more than one half-million hours of service each year through their field placements and volunteer work. The school's faculty are involved in a wide range of scholarly research initiatives, work with government and community-based agencies, and play key roles in major social work journals. Recently the school launched a new initiative; the "Zelda Foster Studies in Palliative and End-of-Life Care," a program named after the social worker most closely associated with the modern-day palliative care movement and a former teacher at the School of Social Work.The School provides accredited programs at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels, and serves as a major postgraduate training center for hundreds of practitioners in the New York region. The School’s Master of Social Work (MSW) program is distinguished for its focus on clinical social work, and for the education of relationship-centered, reflective practitioners.Research facilitiesThe Silver School of Social Work benefits from its access to NYU's research resources. Bobst Library at NYU is one of the largest open-stack research libraries in the nation, as it houses more than 3.3 million volumes, 20 thousand journals, and over 3.5 million microforms. The School itself is also home to Information for Practice, a globally focused website providing the latest news and emerging scholarship in the Social Work profession.
