Lecturers are individuals who are exemplars of inclusive excellence and bring an innovative perspective on diversity, equity, and inclusion in social work education.
From the CSWE website:
Carl A. Scott joined CSWE in 1968, a turbulent time in our country’s history, as a senior consultant on minority groups. He championed CSWE’s early efforts to promote human diversity in social work education by securing funding to recruit minority group students and faculty members. With initial funding from the National Institute of Mental Health, Scott single-handedly developed CSWE’s Minority Fellowship Programs, which are among CSWE’s most vibrant and highly regarded activities. Numerous former fellows now serve as deans, directors, and faculty members in schools and departments of social work.
In recognition of Mr. Scott’s groundbreaking contributions to CSWE and the profession, the Carl A. Scott Memorial Fund was established to continue the legacy of equity and social justice in social work through building knowledge and furthering the well-being of individuals and their communities.
