SSW DE&I Strategic Plan

The School of Social Work's 5-year DEI strategy (2016-2021) seeks to strengthen diversity, equity and inclusion to benefit and bring together all members of the SSW community.

Plan Summary

Beginning in September 2015, the School of Social Work (SSW) engaged in a seven-month planning activity to improve diversity, equity and inclusion at the School of Social Work in the context of the School’s vision, mission and goals. The social work profession mandates and the code of ethics focus the profession and the UM School of Social Work (SSW) on working for justice and reducing the inequities of poverty, exclusion, exploitation, violence, powerlessness, and the dominance of particular cultural norms and values. Thus, the SSW has attended to issues of diversity, equity and inclusion over time. Because the mission of Social Work and its emphasis on field experience (the social work “signature pedagogy”) involves intensive involvement in communities outside UM, students and faculty undertake research and training on many issues, communities and constituencies outside the SSW, as well as an examination of our own institutional practices. In this plan, we identify areas where we need to consolidate and maintain, as well as key priorities for intensive work towards new or renewed goals related to diversity, equity and inclusion.
