In welcoming social work majors, the social work faculty and staff extend a deep welcome to our Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian American and Pacific Islander and students of color. These are tumultuous times. Recognizing the overlapping issues of the pandemic, racial injustice, challenging economics, the contentious and potentially dangerous political climate, and acknowledging that intersecting identities can leave students feeling uniquely isolated, we commit ourselves to: creating brave spaces in our classrooms, offices, and virtual space for listening and speaking out. To disrupting racist and colonialist commentary, actions, and systems. To taking your lead but not expecting you to lead.
