The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay and the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh have established a Collaborative MSW Program that prepares social workers for advanced practice as facilitators, partners and leaders in planned change activities with service users and community service providers. The program aims to prepare practitioners who can work to strengthen families through services, and policies supportive of family and community well being; who can engage in interdisciplinary learning and coordinated interprofessional practice; who can provide leadership in the community and in civic life; and who can encourage and guide the inclusion and representation of Native Americans and members of other cultures in the region. The program offers a full-time curriculum which can be completed in two calendar years. A part-time program is also available. To meet the needs of working students, most courses in the program are offered on evenings and weekends. Students can also integrate and apply their classroom learning in a sixteen-hour-a-week field experience. All social work courses are offered at the UW Fox Valley campus in Menasha, a central location for most students from Northeastern Wisconsin. Some additional elective and interdisciplinary courses will be available on either the UW-Oshkosh or UW-Green Bay campuses.
