Message from the Director

I’d like to extend a warm welcome back to all the members of the School of Social Work community: administrative staff, students, course lecturers, research and teaching assistants, field instructors, faculty and alumni. While we had all wished for a more definitive return to working and teaching in person, it is nevertheless wonderful to be able to begin being together, and we all hope that over the next few months conditions will allow us to continue to make this transition safely. Thank you all for your flexibility and understanding as we try to adapt as well as possible to the diverse needs of our School community.

Welcome in particular to the School’s new home at 550 Sherbrooke. For the next three years (or more, construction in Montreal having its own pace) we will be sharing this new space while Wilson Hall goes through a complete renovation (more on this in an upcoming Bulletin). Some might miss the historic (and dusty) charm of Wilson Hall, but our 550 home offers us a new opportunity to share a larger and better integrated common space for faculty, students, and staff, and a new clinic and simulation center. Once we are unpacked and COVID restrictions are lifted, we will launch our new space with an open house including an opportunity to formally recognize the traditional territory of the Kanien'kehá:ka, one of the founding nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy.

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 an emerging Black Access McGill initiative. Once travel permits, we also hope this year to be able to finally welcome the CASWE accreditation team. Events (Zoom and in-person) will be advertised through the monthly School Bulletin, supplementary School Updates, the School events calendar, and our social media channels (Facebook and Instagram).
