faculty and students talking


Founded in 1929, the UBC School of Social Work is the oldest social work education program in British Columbia and the third oldest in Canada. Today, we continue our long and distinguished record of professional education, research and scholarship.

Our faculty are engaged locally and globally in research and community building in a diverse range of settings with strong links to government, professional and community organizations.

Building upon a foundation of social justice and an ethic of care, we are a community of learners actively engaged in the development of critical, transformative knowledge for social work practice.
