MSW students

In order to foster a campus culture of respect, the Master of Social Work students in collaboration with UTSA student group Beaks up. Speak up. present an exhibit for the entire month of April to raise awareness of sexual violence. Opening reception is April 4 from 4 – 6 p.m. right outside of Gallery 23 in the foyer located on the first floor of the Student Union at the UTSA 1604 campus.

UTSA Master of Social Work students of the Advanced Community Practice class implemented and evaluated three photovoice projects focused on transforming rape culture. The MSW students recruited college students in the San Antonio and Coastal Bend regions of Texas. This exhibit features 14 photographs from the collection of photos taken by the recruited students. The mission of the Photovoice project is to advocate for increased awareness and response to sexual violence within the UTSA community through empowerment and respect to diversity, using symbolic photographs and fostering dialogue.

Event is free and open to the public. Anyone may view the exhibit between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 pm Monday thru Friday.

The event is sponsored by Beaks up. Speak up. Assistant Professor Candace Christensen curated the exhibit in partnership with three MSW students (Lauren Beasley, Annette Landry, and Bea Perez).
