In Memory of Victor Baez

Victor A. Baez was born and spent his early years in the Dominican Republic and forever maintained a strong identification with that country. His family moved to New York City where Victor attended high school and college. He went on to obtain a master’s degree in social work from the University of Chicago, worked as a child welfare social worker, and later earned a Ph.D. in social work at the University of Denver. In 1972, he began a 40-year career as a faculty member in the School of Social Work at Colorado State University, where his intelligence, personal warmth, and commitment to social change made him a beloved and highly respected professor.

At CSU, Victor expressed his strong social concern through teaching the analysis of social programs and guiding students in research to understand social problems. Students considered him a knowledgeable and effective teacher and adviser. He served in many administrative capacities at CSU including acting chair of the Department of Social Work; director of the baccalaureate social work degree program for many years; acting director of El Centro (the campus office for Hispanic students); and chair of the then-College of Applied Human Sciences Curriculum Committee. He was selected for the University’s Alumni Association’s Distinguished Faculty Award, based on his co-leadership of a project to assist departments throughout the University to infuse diversity content into their curricula. Indeed, Victor had a significant impact on Colorado State University.

These funds will be used to create a new fund in the School of Social Work, in Victor’s honor.  Thank you for your support.
