From Barbara Levy Simon, Faculty Advisor to the Columbia Social Work Review:

A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.
I say it just begins
to live that day.
– Emily Dickinson

“Following Emily Dickinson, I think that social workers and social work students breathe enduring life into our reflections and actions when we cast them into written and published form. The Columbia Social Work Review embodies and preserves, therefore, both the present and future of social work.”

From Columbia Social Work Review author, Kelsey Power (Luckily He Backed Off: Mixed Methods Analysis of Undergraduate Women’s Consent, Attitudes, and Behaviors, 2012):

“The most rewarding part of working with a team of editors to publish an academic paper is the knowledge that you are collaborating to share your passion and power with others. This work has the potential to reach unlimited drivers of change who can ultimately affect the lives of each and every one of us. Working with my colleagues to effect change through academia has been a gift to me on both a personal and professional level.”
