Race, Higher Education, and the Grand Challenges for Social Work

February 11 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm MST

Race, Higher Education, and the Grand Challenges for Social Work with Sandra Edmonds Crewe, PhD, MSW on February 11 from 3:30 to 5:50 at the College of Social Work Room 155.

Some argue that issues of race are inherently part of the Grand Challenges for Social Work, while others feel that the impact of racism is so large and far-reaching that it should be addressed as a separate challenge. What role do historically Black colleges and universities – often referred to as HBCUs – play in this conversation and how can other colleges and universities be allies in their efforts? Sandra Edmonds Crewe, dean and professor of social work at Howard University, will discuss this truly grand challenge.

Dr. Crewe has research, scholarship, and public advocacy in the areas of caregiving, aging, ethnogerontology, welfare reform, and social welfare history. She is a long-standing trustee for the Maryland Affordable American Association of Service Coordinators. Additionally, she serves on the board for the National Association of Deans and Directors and is an NASW Social Work Pioneer. Dr. Crewe is a founding member of the HBCU Schools of Social Work Network, and is co-led of the Grand Challenge for Social Work network addressing the eradication of social isolation
