Social Work Degrees

Carver School of Social Work Faculty Highlight

Dr. Renee Sartin

Renee Sartin, Ed.D. is an Associate Professor in the Carver School of Social Work. She also serves as the Chair of the Equality committee for the department. Dr. Sartin earned her BSW from Kentucky State University, her MSW from the University of Louisville and her doctorate from Grand Canyon University in Organizational Leadership with Emphasis on Higher Education. Dr. Sartin’s research interests include cultural diversity, trauma and grief, and Black families.

Based on the tragic loss of her son, Michael, Dr. Sartin has started a non-profit organization entitled “A Call to Action: Grief to Growth”. Through this effort, Dr. Sartin strives to help others who have experienced loss due to gun violence to turn their grief into an opportunity for growth. Dr. Sartin states:

“My family and I began this journey when our son Michael was murdered in September 2020.  We believe if we share our story and talk about how we and others can heal from our grieving it will allow those suffering to process what they are feeling and seek help if needed.”

In memory of her son and in honor of his daughter, Dr. Sartin has established “The Zareyah N. Sartin Award”. This honor will be presented to a Person of Color (POC) BSW graduate and a Person of Color (POC) MSW graduate who has achieved educational success while overcoming life changing challenges during their time as a social work student in the Carver School. Each award recipient will receive a check for $150.00 at the Carver School Pinning Ceremony held prior to graduation each spring, starting in May 2022.

We are very proud to have Dr. Renee Sartin as part of the Carver School family!
