SEPTEMBER 16, 2014
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. 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.
At Innovate@BCSocialWork, readers will hear from a variety of voices, including students, alumni, faculty, researchers, and leaders in practice.
There is always a lot going on at BC Social Work, and this past summer was no different. Here are some initial blog posts highlighting recent events and perspectives close to the school:
- Read an Op-Ed from Dean of Research David Takeuchi on the FIRST Act, which proposes cutting funding to research in the social sciences
- Hear from Law School Dean Vincent Rougeau on 50 years of the Civil Rights Act
- Learn about a recent Kennedy Forum Panel on mental illness and substance abuse moderated by Associate Professor Marylou Sudders, the former Massachusetts Commissioner of Mental Health.
