Student Diversity Groups

At Boston College School of Social Work, our efforts to prepare professionals for empathetic and effective practice in a world filled with complex diversity are carried out with students as partners and collaborators. The following student-led organizations actively participate with the Diversity Committee in responding to this vital dimension of the school's mission.

Social Workers for Social Justice
The Social Workers for Social Justice committee promotes student involvement in social justice activities within the BC Social Work community.

Social Work and Spirituality
Social Work and Spirituality provides a forum for BC Social Work students of various spiritual backgrounds to come together to discuss and explore the intersection between their personal spiritual beliefs and practices and their professional practice as social workers.

Spectrum
Spectrum is a student group for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered students as well as allies. Spectrum educates and informs the larger social work community about diversity, homophobia, and heterosexism and provides space for students to discuss a variety of issues.

Three-Year Program Student Group
The Three-Year Program Student Group is a support group for students in the three- or four-year programs of study.

Umoja
Umoja, an African word meaning unity, is the student organization for people of color (Asian American, African American, Native American, and Latino American).
