Chief Diversity Officer Statement:
Social justice is an integral part of our school’s commitment to operating within the ethical values that are foundational to social work. I’m so excited our school has invested in a dedicated position that supports policies, procedures, and programing to ensure diversity, equity, and inclusion remains fully embedded within the culture of the program. I am honored to highlight how our diverse faculty and staff continue to foster safe, inclusive environments and create opportunities to strengthen diversity and cultural awareness.
