We encourage Boston University faculty with an interest in health, social work, and social justice to become involved with the Center as a faculty affiliate.

CISWH faculty affiliates represent a broad range of schools, departments, centers, institutions, and programs across BU, and provide leadership for the Center’s transdisciplinary work, including outcomes-oriented research, community partnerships, policy development, and education and training activities. Affiliates can be tenured/tenure-track faculty, non-tenured faculty, adjunct faculty, or lecturers.
