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. One of our first steps to implement the plan is to create an Office that will be responsible for prioritizing and coordinating the efforts of this comprehensive plan with the entire SSW community.
