Strategic Directions

Our approach to making a world of difference

As a faculty we make decisions and investments based on a shared vision, principals and strategies that have been developed by our faculty, our many important stakeholders and collaborators, the social work profession and the university of Calgary. These various strategic documents provide insight into how we're planning and moving into the future.


Part of the bigger picture

As one of the top 15 social work schools in North America - as measured by research output - we are also an important part of several of the University of Calgary's research priorities, working collaboratively with colleagues and researchers in faculties and disciplines across our campus and around the world.

In many ways we operate as a a hub of research and innovation within the communities we serve and partner with as we work together to create new knowledge and new approaches to build a better and more equitable society for all.
