The School of Social Work is pleased to present the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion plan developed by the SSW community. From Fall 2016 to Winter 2017, we engaged in a year-long process to develop a plan that will help our SSW community improve diversity, equity and inclusion in the context of our social work heritage, as expressed in our vision, mission and goals.
