The Community Social Work Team provides support to students of all ages, groups, backgrounds, and income levels in becoming connected to each other, the campus community, and resources both on and off campus. Connecting to your campus community plays an important role to your overall well-being. 

Our team facilitates many presentations, training sessions, and community events to bring students together, build community, decrease loneliness and build capacity that will assist during your time on campus and beyond. 

You are not alone here at the University of Alberta. Our team is approachable, knowledgeable and can be a great first place to start with many of your questions and concerns — email cswteam@ualberta.ca.
