Dieuveut Gaïty, MSW, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Social Work

I was born and raised in Haiti. Before starting my journey in academia, I had worked for several organizations, such as United Nations Development Program/CNDDR, CREFEC, FOHO, Doctors Without Borders, and International Organization for Migration. As an alumnus of the graduate School of Social Work at Roberts, I am pleased to join their faculty team. My passion and my key roles are to help students critically envision and explore possibilities of macro social work practice through theories and skill-building activities during class and beyond in order for them to be more equipped for their future endeavors in Social Work.
