Mentorship stands as the bedrock of excellence in social work education, fostering a culture of continuous learning, growth, and advocacy. By expanding mentorship opportunities and providing support to both mentors and mentees, we pave the way for the continued success and impact of future generations of social workers. Let us collectively commit to nurturing a culture of mentorship, empowering students to become compassionate, competent, and socially conscious professionals dedicated to creating positive change in the world.

NASW-ND Statement on the Uncovering of UND Tribal Remains

Written in collaboration with NASW-ND’s Northeast Region Representative, Katie Dachtler

NASWND Chapter 0 1417

The National Association of Social Workers, North Dakota Chapter (NASW-ND) was appalled to hear of the Indigenous ancestral remains of 70 relatives and numerous artifacts desecrated in 250 boxes on the University of North Dakota (UND) campus. We acknowledge the university’s turbulent history with tribal nations and the suffering that these findings raise. We grieve alongside our sovereign nations. While we know that another apology does not begin to ease the pain inflicted, we are committed to amplifying your needs and wants throughout the repatriation process as well as support your healing and well-being.
