Title of Presentation: The Need for Critical Race Theory as a Practical Approach for Racial Justice and Equity for Black Folx in Higher Education: Implications for Students and Administrators
The UNCG Department of Social Work and Gerontology Program acknowledges the National Hispanic Heritage Month! While we are committed to celebrating, amplifying, and lifting the work of our Hispanic or Latinx Folx each day, we especially utilize this opportunity as a moment to reflect and appreciate the many sacrifices, contributions, and excellence that we are fortunate to experience.
We are grateful for our Faculty, Staff, Students, and Friends who identify as Hispanic or Latinx and we continue to stay committed to the advocacy and work needed to ensure their racial, ethnic, economic, social, and environmental justice!
