The Boston College School of Social Work proudly announces the launch of a new school blog: Innovate@BCSocialWork, an interactive space designed to serve those who are committed to social justice.

The goal of Innovate@BCSocialWork is to build a community of people who care about the study of social work in higher education, while highlighting social work practice and research taking place both within, and beyond, BC's campus walls.  More about BC Social Work Blog »
