The School for Global Inclusion and Social Development (SGISD) focuses on social justice and economic development from an international perspective. Our emphasis is on groups of people who are excluded from communities here in the U.S. and abroad, due to gender, ethnicity, age, economic status, and other conditions.
In December 2014, the Boston Globe Magazine listed us as #10 in their article 12 Ideas for Making Boston More Inclusive.
In February 2015, U.S. News and World Report ranked our rehabilitation counseling master's program #1 in New England.
