Master of Social Work

Bachelor of Social Work
As a social work educator my ultimate goal is to light a fire for social justice in my students. That fire has been stoked in me as a learner by experiences that challenge me to engage in a new way – understanding a different perspective, seeing an unexpected relevance to my own life, or exposing an unanticipated opportunity for action. I strive to involve my students in a similar process through genuine, respectful relationships and transformative educational practices.
From the moment I arrived on campus for my interview, Clarke University felt like home. I hear this same sentiment echoed in my students’ conversations about why they chose Clarke, as well. I am grateful to be part of an institution where relationships matter and people find a place they belong.
Amanda joins the Clarke University Social Work department faculty with 17 years of professional practice and social work education experience. She has worked in a variety of settings, including community health, family development/self-sufficiency, women’s health, elder services, and schools. Most recently, Amanda served as the Director of Field Education for the MSW program at St. Ambrose University.
