Diversity and Inclusion

The College of Social Work is committed to fostering inclusion and diversity based on equal opportunity and respect. We strive to create an environment in which every student, faculty and staff member recognizes and values all races, ethnicities, religions, genders, identity expression and sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status.

The College of Social Work is committed to the goals for diversity as outlined in the University of South Carolina's Strategic Priority No. 4: Build Inclusive And Inspiring Communities from Focus Carolina 2023: Excellence Rising.

  • Develop programs that promote inclusion
  • Create partnerships and programs that support the success of under-resourced students and underrepresented faculty and staff members
  • Improve communication about diversity and inclusion efforts
  • Deliver biennial assessment and reporting of campus climate

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
