Dr. Yarneccia D. Dyson

Last summer, Dr. Yarneccia D. Dyson was invited by our (Council on Social Work Education/CSWE) accrediting body to join the newly formed Task Force to Advance Anti-Racism in Social Work Education, and was asked to Co-Lead the Curriculum Development Work Group.

In addition, she was asked to present the key recommendations from our Work Group during the Membership Meeting at our Virtual Conference and they begin at 14:30 in the video below. The other Work Groups under the Task Force included: Faculty and Student Racial/Ethnic Equity Work Group, Educational Policy and Accreditation Work Group, and Conferences and Faculty Development Work Group. She has been asked to continue on into the next phase, which is Implementation Strategies.

As Department Chair Dr. Floyd-Pickard notes, “This national service and recognition speaks to your hard work and amazing contributions, as well as your growing reputation in the field.”  Congratulations, Dr. Dyson!
