Please join us in celebrating the many accomplishments of our GCSW faculty and community who have responded to the challenges of the last two years by diligently working toward our vision of achieving social, racial, economic, and political justice, local to global.

As we faced these challenges, our College has prioritized research that emphasizes public impact while also challenging harmful, oppressive systems and reimagining ways to achieve justice and liberation. As we embark on 2022 we look forward to continuing these efforts and engaging more deeply with our Eyes On Abolition series, which began in Fall 2020.

We invite you to join us this year as we move toward freedom together.
