The University at Buffalo School of Social Work’s curriculum offers a wide variety of courses with different themes. In light of the current social climate in support of Black Lives Matter and other social justice movements, we wish to highlight courses that have a significant racial equity/justice focus in the course description. These courses help students improve understanding of structural racism, anti-racist practice strategies and diversity.  In Spring 2021, the courses that emphasize racial equity/justice include both undergraduate and graduate options.
