EMU Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation social justice Scholarship

The Eastern Michigan University School of Social Work is excited to announce

The first year of the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation Social Justice Scholarship.

Eastern Michigan University’s School of Social Work strives to live out its social justice mission through the education provided to students in our classroom; through engaged research; through community service; and through university service. The School of Social Work at EMU has a strong commitment to the region and its communities. The School prepares students to work with vulnerable, oppressed, and underserved populations and help people tackle problems rooted in poverty, racism, ageism, violence or illness. Our faculty, staff, students and alumni serve people of every age and background as they script new futures for themselves.

The School is committed to providing access to high quality education for students from diverse backgrounds, including students who face material challenges as they strive to earn a college degree. Advocacy and mentorship for talented students of limited means is a critical part of our social justice mission.

In 2018, the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation identified the School of Social Work as the recipient of a generous social justice endowment. Bruce Halle is an Eastern Michigan University alum and founder of Discount Tire and namesake of the library. Bruce and his wife Diane have generously earmarked funds to support faculty and students in the School of Social Work to advance social justice efforts.
