large_Beasley.jpgCongratulations to Clinical Assistant Professor Dr. Candice C. Beasley, LCSW-BACS, for her recent appointment as a member of the Council on Racial, Ethnic, and Cultural Diversity with the Council on Social Work Education.

As part of this group, Dr. Beasley will support expanding the knowledge base for educators, students, and alumni through education and disseminating and encouraging research about members of historically and emerging underrepresented groups. It also initiates new activities and programs related to these groups in social work education while (a) acknowledging the impact of the entrenched influences of power, privilege, and oppression on their experiences and the larger social, economic, and political structure; (b) fostering critical understanding of their experience through an empathic lens; and (c) emphasizing social change and achieving equality and nondiscrimination and political, civil, social, economic, and cultural rights.
