Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has become a prominent fixture within the social work profession, with educational and professional organizations paying closer attention to issues related to DEI. The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the governing body for accrediting social work education programs, has required social work programs to demonstrate a commitment to DEI in their implicit curriculum. Therefore, the School of Social Work is interested in understanding student perspectives and experiences of DEI efforts particularly within the implicit curriculum.


Dr. Anna Yelick, assistant professor, and Dr. Dee Sherwood, associate professor, both from the School of Social Work, were recipients of one of the 2022 WMU Assessment Mini Grants, awarded to conduct research on assessment of student learning outcomes. Attached is the final report for their research project.
