The Grand Challenges in Social Work highlight important societal dilemmas that demand innovation and the creation of new knowledge networks. To lead research, scholarship, teaching, and practice around these challenges, social work scholars must bring together relevant disciplines and professions, social work practice partners, and communities. These knowledge networks leverage the strength of a diversity of fields and draw on the lived experience of communities and populations embedded in the problems of concern to us.

In our efforts to continually translate knowledge into social action and intervention, schools of social work know the necessity and value of being rooted in places and communities in enduring ways, and of collaborating with those embedded in social dilemmas.
