Diversity and Inclusion

The College of Social Work is committed to fostering inclusion and diversity based on equal opportunity and respect. We strive to create an environment in which every student, faculty and staff member recognizes and values all races, ethnicities, religions, genders, identity expression and sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are an inherent part of the social justice mission of social work. “The primary mission of the social work profession is to enhance human well-being and help meet the basic human needs of all people, with particular attention to the needs and empowerment of people who are vulnerable, oppressed, and living in poverty.”¹ This work is not simply an ideal toward which we aspire as a profession, but the very essence of who we are in the world. Social workers keep equity and justice at the heart of our practice.
