Heights Room, Corcoran Commons
Part of the Boston College Graduate School of Social Work 2013 Orientation program for all incoming students, this event will explore the social work profession's commitment to social justice and our school's promise to prepare students for empathetic and effective social work practice in a world filled with wonderful and complex diversity. As the academic year begins, incoming students are welcomed into our community's ongoing conversations about power and privilege, race, ethnicity, culture, spirituality, gender, sexuality, disability, and other aspects of a diverse world.
Lunch will be served.
In addition, throughout the 2013-2014 academic year, the BC Social Work community will consider the impact of intolerance, discrimination, and prejudice on the health and happiness of older adults and their families.
