Message from the Director


I’d like to extend a warm welcome back to all the members of the School of Social Work community: students, administrative staff, course lecturers, research and teaching assistants, field instructors, faculty and alumni.  Welcome, in particular, to our temporary home at 550 Sherbrooke, on the traditional territory of the Kanien'kehá:ka, one of the founding nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. For the next two years (or more, construction in Montreal has its own pace), we will be sharing this new space while Wilson Hall goes through a complete renovation. “Five-fifty” offers a glimpse of what the new Wilson Hall will have to offer: a larger and better integrated common space for faculty, students, and staff and a dedicated clinic and simulation center.

I’d like to invite you all to get involved with the School over the next few months through our research centers, journal clubs, student societies, Indigenous Access McGill, and Black Access McGill.   Events will be advertised through the monthly School Bulletin, supplementary School Updates, the School events calendar, and our social media channels (Facebook and Instagram).

While we are finally back to in-person teaching and meetings, please keep in mind that the COVID variants that keep emerging pose serious risks to staff, students and visitors with chronic health needs.  Frequent hand washing and sanitizing and masks in shared spaces will help to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible.

Wishing you all an enriching 2022/2023 school year !
