The Hunger Solutions Institute (HSI) was established by the College of Human Sciences and the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station at Auburn University in February 2012 in an effort to further Auburn’s nationally recognized efforts in food security domestically and globally.
A foundational principle of the HSI is that hunger is a solvable problem, but only when the relevant knowledge from all academic disciplines is combined with the abilities and strengths of all sectors. By creating multi-sector partnerships at the community, state and global levels, HSI shares knowledge and best practices and creates multi-sector coalitions to leverage the power of collective action.



Many areas of research conducted by Auburn University are providing the citizens of Alabama with a better quality of life.

In November of 2000, the Pharmacy Building was named in honor of W.W. Walker, founder of Birmingham-based Walker Drug Company. On Jan. 25, 2002, the Auburn University School of Pharmacy was named the James I. Harrison School of Pharmacy, honoring the contributions Harrison and his family made to the field of pharmacy in the state of Alabama.



Social work is a practice profession and academic discipline dedicated to social welfare through scholarship, professional practice, and advocacy. The practice of social work requires the understanding of human development and behavior and how social, economic and cultural institutions interact with these factors.


Social workers are concerned with hands-on application of research and practice methods that promote engagement, assessment and intervention with individuals who are economically, physically, mentally or socially disadvantaged. A social worker may link people to tangible services; counsel individuals, families and groups; and help communities or groups provide services to improve quality of life.
