Forming a Community of Social Work Critical Race Theory Scholars

Since emerging as a theory for teaching about diversity in social work education a decade ago, there has been an increasing number of educational programs around the country integrating Critical Race Theory into their curriculums at all levels, baccalaureate, master and doctoral.

There has also been a growing body of scholarship, practice innovations and research, but the critical mass of researchers has been relatively small. This project is designed to intentionally create a supportive community of scholars at all levels of the academe to study, support and create a network of people who are interested in contributing to this growing body of literature. This project is both a process in community of interest organizing and a research endeavor.
