"One of the illusions (of life) is that the present hour is not the critical hour." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Faculty who teach Advanced Social Welfare Policy Analysis in the Collaborative MSW Program have been impressed by the quality of critical thought and important policy insights students have described in their policy analysis papers. The knowledge and insights students have shared are valuable resources for citizens, practitioners, and legislators in the region and state, particularly during these challenging but hope-filled times.
The work posted here includes those analyses for which written permission was granted. The Department of Social work encourages ongoing dialogue with students and community members in an effort to improve the situation for the region.
It is important to note that the views expressed are uncensored and may not reflect the views of the university or faculty. Yet in the spirit of freedom of speech and the exchange of ideas, all views are welcome.
