RMW-2: (CANCELLED) Expanding Research Opportunities: Making the Argument for the Fit between HBCUs and Community-Based Participatory Research

The research discusses the history of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), their unique missions, and the alignment of these elements relative to engaging in community-based participatory research (CBPR). The works reflects on both the research and service learning aspects of these institutions that make them such a good “fit” for CBPR.

SSRPCB-2: Social Work’s Grand Challenge: What does it Mean to Eliminate Racism?

Dante Bryant, University of North Carolina, Charlotte (bio)
Sonyia Richardson, University of North Carolina, Charlotte (bio)

In 1971 the Council on Social Work Education publicly acknowledged the need to develop practices that would better prepare social work (SW) to respond to racially-marginalized, and non- racially-majoritarian populations. As a result, by the mid-1980s, SW programs across the country began to import a range of cultural-competency and diversity, training, workshops, and curriculum requirements; some of which have become synonymous with today’s profession. However, over the past decade, many of these efforts have come under considerable scrutiny. The primary criticisms have focused on the a-political nature of these activities, and their failure to address the underlying causes of racial injustice. In keeping with these criticisms, on June 6th, 2020, the Social Work Grand Challenge confronted the SW profession with the task of Eliminating Racism. While this gesture is noteworthy, it raises questions. For example, what does it mean to end racism? And furthermore, what role can social work play? In an effort to resound to these uncertainties, this presentation will attempt to guide participants in their efforts to 1. Contextualize social work’s role and commitments to this process, 2. Critically examine current pedagogical and research practices within the profession, and 3. Actively engage in building and operationalizing models that can support this challenge.
