Our Mission

The mission of Concord University is to provide quality, liberal arts based education, to foster scholarly activities, and to serve the regional community.

The Division of Social Sciences furthers the student's understanding  of human society, increases the student's ability to function effectively within that society and broadens the student's understanding of the means toward acquiring a meaningful, just, and well-ordered society.

The mission of the Social Work Department is to prepare students for beginning generalist social work practice in a wide range of settings, and with diverse populations through education, research, and service with special appreciation for the peoples and institutions of West Virginia, Appalachia, and other rural areas.
