  1. Planning for Fall Semester

    March 16, 2021 - 5:00pm

    We invite you to a community conversation about fall semester. As you know, the University President has announced "a responsible return to in-person education and a residential fall." This is a time for conversation - ask questions, raise concerns, and talk together as a school community. To aid the conversation, space will be limited. (We know it's coming up soon, so if you miss it, don't fear!  If there is a lot of interest in this topic, we can hold another session soon.)

    About the format. A few students and faculty have decided to try something different - smaller community conversations. Our hope is that this can take topics that lend themselves better to verbal dialogue off of email and into a face-to-face (or screen-to-screen!) environment. We will draw heavily on practices from intergroup dialogue and restorative justice.

  3. Undoing Racism Community Meeting

    March 18, 2021 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

    Join us for our March meeting to build community collaboration and continue the conversation about anti-racist practice and actions. 

    Undoing Racism is a community collective of students, staff, and faculty in the School of Social Work dedicated to fighting white supremacy at individual, school and structural levels. This workgroup was established in 2019 after the community took part in the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond Undoing Racism workshops, and builds on their anti-racist community organizing model. Our work has been largely focused on building collective community and emphasizes the role that white members of our community must take on to dismantle and undo white supremacist structures. 

    We know there are many important efforts going on at SSW; Undoing Racism will amplify all these efforts, including the advocacy sparked by MSW and Doctoral students. No matter what role you play here at SSW, you are always welcome and encouraged to come to Undoing Racism meetings.

  4. Building Bridges in a Divided World: The Role of Interfaith Collaboration in Justice Work Building Bridges in a Divided World: The Role of Interfaith Collaboration in Justice Work

    March 18, 2021 - 6:30pm to 9:00pm

    Join the Jewish Communal Leadership Program (JCLP) for a panel discussion about the transformative potential of interfaith work.

    In the wake of a year shaped by a global pandemic, protests for racial justice, extreme political polarization, and more, so many in and outside the Jewish community are facing personal crises and family tragedies. Through it all, we have seen communities respond to those in need by forming and expanding mutual aid networks, advocating for comprehensive safety protocols and transparency, highlighting inequalities, and finding ways to stay connected in the midst of so much physical isolation. Faith-based and interfaith organizations have been uniquely positioned to offer support in this time.

    We are so excited to explore this subject with five distinguished interfaith professionals:

    Aziza Hazan
    Executive Director of NewGround: A Muslim Jewish Partnership for Change

    Reverend Amanda Henderson
    Director of the Institute of Religion, Politics & Culture at the Iliff School of Theology, Former Executive Director of the Interfaith Alliance of Colorado

    Pastor Aramis Hinds
    Executive Director of the Bethel Community Transformation Center and lead pastor at Breakers Covenant Church in Detroit

    Rabbi Andrea London
    Rabbi at Beth Emet in Chicago, Former Co-Chair of JCUA's Jewish-Muslim Community Building Initiative Advisory Committee

    Rabbi Samuel L. Spector
    Rabbi at Congregation Kol Ami in Salt Lake City

  6. The Case for Mind-Body Studies and Practice: Interactive Presentation by Ruth Moss

    March 19, 2021 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

    The Child Welfare Association alongside the SSW Student Union are proud to present:

    This presentation is an overview suggesting the expansion of Clinical Social Workers' scope of practice to include Mind-Body-Spirit studies and techniques for the sake of achieving better therapeutic outcomes.

    We encourage our audience to take time to watch Dr. Nadine Buke Harris's Ted Talk: How childhood trauma affects health across a lifetime. Dr. Burke's Ted Talk provides viewers a better understanding of how high ACE Scores can impact the nervous system. This will help to give you an understanding of the importance of Mind Body Studies and the benefits that this practice can bring individuals.
