Director's Message

Dear visitor,

Whether you are a student, parent, community worker, university colleague, or alumnae, the School of Social Work is keen to provide the information you need. This site includes information about the School’s undergraduate, master's and doctoral programs (the latter offered jointly with the Université de Montréal) as well as events, research, and news of wider interest.

The School is proud of its longstanding service to the professional, academic and Montreal community, since its foundation as the Montreal School of Social Work in 1918. It is great to see the School’s staff and students' continued commitment to furthering social justice and equality, as well as excellent research and teaching.

Building on its recognized strengths, the School is now actively planning for its future. Professional education must set the pace for equipping people with the critical, analytic and practice skills they need. This is particularly important for a school of social work committed to bringing together research excellence and education to serve the community. The project will set new directions for the school which will guide its development over the next 5 years. Our plans will be grounded on an understanding of the issues facing social work and social work education here in Canada and internationally.

All in all, it's an exciting time to join or renew your relationship with the School.

 

Nico Trocmé
Director
