Description

Our research study focuses on uncovering the barriers that BSW students at Salem State University may encounter towards achieving their higher education goals, particularly students who belong to historically marginalized groups. Existing issues of accessibility and sustainability in higher education will be thoroughly investigated, as well as the conditions whereby inequalities may be perpetuated. In doing so, the researchers aim to identify the root causes of disparities to cultivate workable solutions which will lead to a more equitable future for all students and significantly increase positive outcomes pursuant to social justice within the realm of higher education.
