During 2011-2013, the Equity Task Force conducted a literature review/annotated bibliography; case studies of national and international faculties and schools of social work with exemplary equity policies and plans; focus groups with alumni, BSW and MSW curriculum committees, and community stakeholders; dialogue groups with students, sessional instructors, and faculty; and a survey among students, faculty, and staff at the School of Social Work.

The School of Social Work approved and passed the Equity Committee Mandate at its council meeting on February 27, 2014.
