Through research, teaching, and action, the Transforming Communities Initiative (TCI) strives to enhance our local and statewide community engagement and program impact, by partnering with social service agencies to address the needs in our communities. Specifically we aim to:
1) Conduct research in the community and for the community.
2) Teach the next generation of social work leaders to be data-driven and civically engaged.
3) Take action in our communities to challenge social injustices and pursue social change.
