Under the leadership of the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the DEI Training Program recognizes the critical importance of emerging social workers to be able to engage in organization and structural advancement of diversity, equity, and inclusion to move towards a more socially just world. By equipping MSW students with the tools and knowledge to navigate complex social dynamics, challenge systemic inequalities, and promote inclusive practices, we aim to foster a new generation of social workers who can effectively advocate for historically marginalized communities and contribute to the development of equitable policies and programs.
The DEI Training Program aims to provide MSW students with opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in a variety of settings using micro, mezzo, and macro practice skills. The program aims to prepare them for a wide range of roles in social work, where they can actively contribute to creating more inclusive and equitable communities.
This program integrates intraprofessional and interprofessional educational opportunities to maximize learning with, from, and about other health professionals to develop skills in collaborative change efforts.
This scholarship will provide support to MSW students who have strong financial need and who plan to pursue clinical social work.
