SSW We Care Graphic

As social work faculty and staff, we believe that “all spaces should look like all faces” (April Ryan, February 2022, presentation at NKU).  

In alignment with the NASW Code of Ethics, the NKU School of Social Work is fully committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. We see and care about all people, including the many populations who are often invisible within our society.  

We believe that every person, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, age, ability, class, spiritual beliefs, and national origin, deserves safety and universal equity.   

As community organizers, we believe in social justice and equitable access to care, and we have seen the power of interdependence and the impact of our given and chosen communities. We believe in each of us, individually and collectively, and we know we have work to do.
