The Indiana University School of Social Work’s graduate program is ranked among the top schools of social work programs in the nation, according to the latest rankings by U.S. News & World Report.

The school was ranked 26th out of 200 social work programs in the country in the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools rankings released on March 13, 2012. The school, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011, has seen its ranking rise from 114th more than 10 years ago to 26th, a position it was awarded in the previous graduate school rankings.

The school’s high ranking in such a competitive field of social work programs, is a testament to the hard work of everyone associated with the school, Dr. Michael Patchner, Dean of the School of Social Work, noted. “I thank each of you for what you do every day that contributes to our national recognition,” Dean Patchner wrote in an email sent to faculty and staff on campuses across Indiana where the school has social work programs. “Without your good work we would not be so highly ranked, nor would we have a school that is so special to all of us.”
