A Message from Dean Gilmore: August 2017

Aug 16 2017

As we are embarking on a new academic year and welcoming hundreds of new students who will be trained to be effective Change Agents, we are confronted each day with the ills of our nation – from the frightening threat of nuclear war, to the devastating opioid epidemic, to the horrific and heartbreaking events that unfolded last weekend in Charlottesville.

It is more important and urgent than ever to maintain our commitment to being informed, activated, and prepared to assist those in creating social policy and action plans that will defeat these threats to our core values.

The dignity and worth of all people is our driving principle – for the Mandel School and for the professions of social work and nonprofit management. We reaffirm our vow to defend and advocate for all people – regardless of race, ethnicity, nativity, religion, gender, gender identity, ability, or sexual orientation – and to speak out in solidarity with the chorus that champions for social, racial, and economic justice.

Our mission is to build a more just world by advancing leadership in social work and nonprofit education, research, and service. With our passionate new and current students, our alumni network over 8,000 strong, and our faculty and researchers renowned for their work on these most pressing problems, a just world is within our reach.

On Oppression, Racism, and Chief Wahoo

Apr 11 2017

A statement from Dean Grover “Cleve” Gilmore:

Today is Opening Day for professional baseball in Cleveland, and it’s an appropriate time to remind our Mandel School community of the racism and oppression represented by the Cleveland baseball team’s mascot.

As a fan of Cleveland sports, I celebrate our teams’ successes and their positive impact on the community. However, the Chief Wahoo logo is a racist image that demeans and dishonors native cultures – people who are our fellow colleagues, classmates, and clients. I do not wear items with that image, and I ask that everyone consider the full impact on members of our community when choosing attire.

​This semester our Standing Tall for Social Justice project has challenged us each week to consider what we can do to build a better community for all people.  Today I ask you to consider what you can do to support native identifying people.​


With peace and hope: A message from Dean Gilmore

Dec 9 2016

grover-c-gilmore-headshotDear Mandel School Community,

As the fall semester is concluding and everyone prepares for a much-needed winter break, I wanted to take this opportunity to offer my gratitude to you, reflect on the past few months, and look to what lies ahead in 2017 for fighters for social justice.

First: My most sincere gratitude. This year has seen more milestones than any other year in our school’s 100-year history, and they were all made more meaningful because of YOU – the people who are collaborating as learners, teachers, supporters, advocates, and activists to make MSASS the strongest and most vital school it has ever been.

But we all know 2016 was also filled with some of the most profound challenges we have ever faced. We dealt with a presidential election that stunned all of us. Its outcome raises very real fears and concerns for the safety of ourselves, our loved ones, and the groups of disenfranchised and powerless people we serve. The Cleveland Indians making the World Series was happy for sports fans, but the team’s use of a racist logo is harmful and hurtful. And we are seeing daily assaults on the very notions of equality, diversity, inclusion, and justice that we hold dear.

Yet I recognize we live in a nation where we can make a difference, and our ability to make social change has not been diminished. This happens when we express ourselves and work with others to support our common values. We’ve been reminded that as a school, the education programs that we create and support in social work and nonprofit management are now more meaningful and necessary than ever.

I look forward to working with this strong Mandel School community in 2017 and beyond to continue our work toward a just society for all people – where everyone not only feels valued, but IS valued. We must continue to believe in the work that we do together.

During this winter break and holiday season, I hope you find moments of peace and sources of hope to rejuvenate your spirit and strengthen your soul. Because we have a lot of fighting to do in the new year.

With peace and hope,

Dean Grover “Cleve” Gilmore
