Although the growth and visibility of diverse populations continues to enrich our country, many communities still feel the effects of social and economic inequality. Social work students are looking to educators, now more than ever, to help them prepare for effective practice in the context of diversity and social justice issues.
To aid this effort, CSWE's Center for Diversity and Social & Economic Justice is launching the Now More Than Ever campaign. The campaign involves

  • a survey of all social work programs on education priorities regarding diversity and justice;
  • the Educator/Resource of the Month, a Q&A with a social work educator that will showcase a new teaching resource on the Center's website;
  • the timely creation of educational materials in response to current social issues; and
  • the development of resources on research-informed interventions with diverse populations.

Now More Than Ever is officially launching at CSWE's 2018 Annual Program Meeting in Orlando, Florida. Visit the CSWE Booth to learn more and pick up your campaign button to show your support.
We invite you to join us in this important work.6577-B_cswe_Diversity_Button_3inch_300ppi_cmyk_PRINT.jpg
