Social Work Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice
CSU’s School of Social Work acknowledges and embraces the myriad characteristics that make each of us exceptional, within an atmosphere that promotes and celebrates individual and collective achievement.
The School respects, honors, and values individual differences and diverse ideas. Using a lens of intersectionality, and in alignment with the values and principles stated in the National Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics, each person is treated with dignity, care, and respect.
In 2021-22 the Committee for Social Justice led a comprehensive needs assessment of diversity, equity, inclusion, social justice, and belonging in the School of Social Work. Existing data were combined with interviews and focus groups from stakeholders in the School community, including students and employees. The results were presented in an open forum on May 12, 2022, and the presentation and slide deck are shared below. The final written report will be shared in July 2022. Questions about the needs assessment can be directed to CSJ co-chair Paula Yuma, firstname.lastname@example.org
