SW 975 Racial Equity and Social Justice in Research and Practice

SW 975.  Racial Equity and Social Justice in Research and Practice.  3 Credits.     

This course explores racial equity and social, economic, and environmental justice as it relates to research and implementation science. These two major components are explored and integrated throughout the semester. First, through a historical equity lens, students identify the ways in which research has contributed toward oppression and marginalization. They situate their own research in an anti-oppressive framework and critical lens to understand and identify research methods that promote equity and justice both in the research process and potential impacts. Second, students develop an understanding and application of implementation science principles and frameworks. Students gain knowledge and skills for identifying and using implementation science strategies that support the translation of research into real world practice. Implementation is examined from an equity lens to consider how implementation processes can promote racial equity and social, economic, and environmental justice.
