Social workers lead important societal change

Social Work Breaks Barriers.

Published March 3, 2023

Keith A. Alford, dean of the UB School of Social Work, published an opinion piece in The Buffalo News recognizing national Social Work Month, honoring the role models who led him to this profession, and celebrating social workers for their positive impact on individuals, families and communities. 

“Simply put, social workers break down barriers for marginalized populations and uplift communities,” Alford wrote. “What unites all of us is our dedication to racial and social justice and commitment to honoring the dignity and worth of all those we meet.”
