While the LGBTQ Caucus of Social Work Students & Faculty was formed in 2004, there were quite a few events, projects, and committees that led up to it. A special THANK YOU to Dr. James Martin for compiling this important tracing of our history, below. 

History of the LGBTQ Caucus.docx

Where we are today

More recently, the LGBTQ Caucus has continued to build our infrastructure and programming.  Beginning in 2017 we have published booklets of members currently on the job market and in 2020 we held a panel of faculty to share their experiences around being LBGTQ on the academic job market. In non-pandemic years, we continue to hold meetings at both the CSWE APM and annual SSWR conference, with an eye on additional virtual membership meetings. We continue to have a CSOGIE liaison present at our monthly board meetings.
