Committee for Social Justice
The School of Social Work’s Committee for Social Justice promotes social justice and social change through:
- engaging scholarship,
- and community service.
Our group of faculty and student leaders recognize the need to welcome and honor people of all races, genders, creeds, cultures, and sexual orientations, while valuing intellectual curiosity and integrity. We also provide leadership and direction to the School of Social Work as the school implements diversity initiatives in accordance with its diversity plan.
Looking for a queer space within the School of Social Work? The Queer Umbrella is a place for queer folx and allies to come together for community and support.
