Anti-Racism Thesis Topic

Looking for a thesis topic? Committed to dismantling institutional racism? Want your thesis to make a difference? Every two years Smith College School for Social Work produces a report on its progress towards realizing the SSW Anti-Racism Commitment. The Anti-Racism Task Force is looking for a student who would like to analyze the findings of SSW's Anti-Racism Commitment progress reports to help us chart the way forward. If interested, please contact Fred Newdom at fnewdom@smith.edu to discuss how this project could become a thesis.
