Ethnic Studies Letter of Support

Another opportunity to sign on in solidarity - UIC's Undergraduate Student Government unanimously passed a resolution to create a Critical Ethnic Studies and Gender Studies General Education category at UIC.

"Currently, racism is America's most challenging and pressing issue. Its effects are seen and experienced in every field, at every level, in every part of our country, as well as the world.

This means, regardless of the major and career any student chooses to pursue, anywhere in the world, a student must be aware of the injustices that exist within it. If not, UIC fails to fulfill their mission to provide students with the intellectual resources needed to truly transform the world as civic and social leaders."

While there are a number of resources for students of color here at UIC, such as cultural centers, academic support units, and student organizations, efforts to continuously create a culture of i...

Hi JASG and fellow social work comrades. Any chance we can work on getting some type of LSW exam test prep brought to campus for the spring semester? I've asked some faculty if JACSW offers any kind of in-house test prep and the general response i've gotten has been along the lines of "LOL NOPE". There's the day-long test prep session offered by NASW-IL, which is cool, except even for NASW members it's still almost $200 (with "free CEUs" that, from my understanding, don't even count because we can only start collecting CEUs once we are licensed). Many of the behavioral health social work type jobs in the Chicago area that I've seen posted require an LSW, or will pay more (even if only slightly) for said credential...

School Social Workers I am researching social emotional screeners and gathering information in regard to the behaviors assessed, cost, ease of use, and research studies behind it. Our schools goal is to compare other S-E screeners to the SDQ and decide if it makes sense to switch to a new tool. What are other places using and why?! TIA
