Social Justice

Advocating for vulnerable communities and populations is an important mandate of the School of Social Work. Our ultimate goal is the formation of just and equitable societies. 


The McGill School of Social Work was founded in 1918. Since it opened, with the support of donors and alumni, the School has continued to provide world-class social work education, generate leading research, and strive for social justice in the community, Canada, and internationally.


Through classroom and practical experiences, students are encouraged to develop skills and competencies, think critically about their role as helping professionals, understand the ethics of social work practice, and consider effective policy change and implementation.


The School is engaged in a range of community-based research projects. These projects serve community needs while providing opportunities for students to develop research experience, and for researchers to better understand real-world experiences of social issues.


The McGill School of Social Work is affiliated with many clinics and research centres locally, nationally, and internationally. Faculty have a wide variety of research interests and work hard to bridge research-based practices with clinical education.
