Dr. Melissa McCollister, Prof. Janice Steinmetz, and the School of Social Work students marched in
the 28th Annual Pride Parade in Cleveland on Saturday, June 24, 2017. This was the first time UA has ever marched in the PRIDE parade! The theme was "United We Stand OUT." BSW and MSW students from all three campuses (Lakewood, Main, and Wayne College), family, friends, and alumni marched in the parade. They came together with our common goals of celebrating love, spreading acceptance, educating on current issues, and demonstrating equality.
