BC Social Work Launches Blog

SEPTEMBER 16, 2014

The Boston College School of Social Work proudly announces the launch of a blog called Innovate@BCSocialWork, an interactive space designed to serve those who are committed to social justice. While the blog will serve the students, alumni, and faculty of the school, it's intended for anyone seeking to engage in an intellectual forum about how to make transformation happen.

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 »

Q & A: Field Education Director Walks in the Shoes of a Client

AUGUST 12, 2014

LIFTopolis is a unique event sponsored by LIFT, a non-profit organization devoted to establishing "a new standard for holistic and enduring solutions in our country's fight against poverty."

During the course of two days, LIFTopolis attendees (including social workers, social work educators, and students) engage in an interactive simulation where they're asked to "navigate the complex process of obtaining stable housing, employment, and other basic needs when living in poverty." In short, participants spend time walking in the shoes of the men, women, and children they provide, or will provide, services to.

This year, BC Social Work Director of Field Education Sue Coleman took part in LIFTopolis for the first time, an event which she says was an "eye-opening experience that could serve as a great resource for many in the field of social work."  More about LIFTopolis »
