Building Allies of Diversity (BAD) Student Group
The Building Allies of Diversity Student Group strives to create a safe environment to have hard conversations about social justice, inclusivity, and diversity amongst the Metropolitan State University of Denver community of social work students, faculty, staff and alumni.
The purpose of the Student group Building Allies of Diversity (BAD) is to create a safe environment for students, faculty, alumni, and community members to hold difficult conversations about social justice, inclusivity, and diversity. The group was formed on the foundation of CSWE core competencies with the goal of bringing students, faculty, alumni, and community members together to have conversations about current social, political, and cultural issues to encourage education and community involvement to create change. The BAD student group understands, the intersectionality between social, cultural, and political issues, and includes all three as important discussion topics. Our goal is to challenge oppressive views in society through education and conversations among people who may have different viewpoints.
