School and Campus Climate Forum

For School of Social Work students, staff and faculty


Monday, April 11 • 5:30 PM

Room 114, School of Social Work


As a result of #theRealUW initiative, which has brought necessary attention to persisting racial issues on campus, many of us at the School of Social Work have been talking about campus climate and structural issues around racial, economic and social injustice that need systematic attention. Come together on Monday evening to share those ideas and strategize about change that we can enact or propose for the UW-Madison campus to ensure a just and supportive environment for students, staff, and faculty.


If you cannot attend and have ideas to share, please email or share your ideas with colleagues who will attend.

Shannon Davis dropped out of college at age 20 due to severe health problems. Almost two decades later, she enrolled at the University of Wisconsin—Madison, wondering if she’d have the physical strength to navigate campus.


Davis rose to the occasion by excelling in her classes and earning admission to the UW–Madison School of Social Work. This spring, she’s proud to be a student keynote speaker for the school’s graduate recognition ceremony.


Davis will be awarded the Outstanding Undergraduate Returning Adult Student Award for continuing her education in the face of extreme challenges, and Davis and other recipients will be honored at a reception from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. April 26 at Varsity Hall in UW–Madison’s Union South. She will receive a $1,000 award.
