Under the agreement, Santander will continue its support for the University's international doctoral program in social welfare, headquartered in the Graduate School of Social Work.  More about the BC-Santander Agreement »

BC Perspectives
50th Anniversary of Civil Rights Act

JULY 10, 2014

"BC Perspectives" highlights some of the important issues being explored by the Boston College community that reflect the Graduate School of Social Work's commitment to social justice.

This summer marks the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Civil Rights Act. While much has changed since 1964, our nation still has a multitude of uphill social battles in front of us, from eliminating ongoing racism, to finding a way to provide widespread access to quality healthcare, to caring for our aging population.

In a recent issue of America magazine, Boston College School of Law Dean Vincent D. Rougeau penned an article on the legacy and ongoing challenges of the civil rights act. It's a powerfully personal story of his own family's journey, where he recounts his grandfather's life in segregation as a migrant worker who was never assured of receiving his next paycheck.  More about 50th Anniversary of Civil Rights Act »
