The Data for Equitable Justice Lab
The Data for Equitable Justice Lab gives students in the Master of Science in Social Policy + Data Anlytics for Social Policy Certificate program (MSSP+DA) an opportunity to analyze some of today’s most important social issues through data and, with faculty support, create a product for audiences well beyond our classrooms and campus.
With guidance from the lab faculty, students develop a project – either individually or as part of a team – to examine a contemporary social policy or political issue through or on data or digital technology. Through these projects students produce an op-ed, blog post, podcast, academic article, short film, or other product that creates or contributes to contemporary discourse.

SP2 expands practical experience for MSW students through simulation curriculum
With the support of SP2 Dean Sara S. Bachman, simulations were recently expanded beyond the MSW Program’s second-year clinical courses so that they are now also part of the second-year macro practice courses as well as the first-year curriculum. The exercises provide space for students to grow and gain experience outside the parameters of more traditional settings.
