The College of Graduate Studies has signed a partnership with the Needham-based Justice Resource Institute (JRI), an organization that offers 100 diverse programs designed to meet the needs of underserved individuals, families and communities. BSU and JRI will each cover a third of the tuition for JRI employees as they take classes in the Master of Social Work program. According to Dr. Lisa Krissoff Boehm, Dean of the College of Graduate Studies, JRI is eager to bring on BSU students for a wide variety of internship opportunities.
“Ultimately we are making a better Massachusetts because social workers improve our communities in so many ways,” Dr. Boehm said. “We are more successful as individuals, families and institutions through the work of social workers.”
