Land Acknowledgment Statement

The University of Michigan's School of Social Work is located in the Huron River watershed, on land stewarded by Niswi Ishkodewan Anishinaabeg (The Three Fires People); who are the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Bodewadmi. As we work, live and learn on these territories we must keep in mind the ongoing effects of colonization, the communities' struggle for self-determination, colonial state violence, and the recognition of Indigenous sovereignty. Through scholarship and pedagogy, we work to create a future in which the past is thoroughly understood and the present aims to enhance social justice while enacting an ethic of care and compassion.
