We envision a campus where resiliency and a sense of connection are fostered and celebrated.
Through preventative action we engage with partners from campus and surrounding area to strengthen capacity, provide bridges to resources, and advocate for greater inclusivity.
Our Guiding Principles:
In supporting the University of Alberta’s mission and four cornerstones, our work with students is rooted in the following five principles:
Community — We promote a perspective where community voices and knowledge are imperative to the process of collaboration, the development of meaningful relationships and the building of community capacity.
Balance — As social workers, we are committed to integrating a holistic understanding of well-being in supporting the success of those that we work with.
Creativity — We value experiences that foster critical thinking, curiosity and inspiring ways of doing, being, and thinking.
Social Justice — We are advocates for social justice working with allies in the community to move the greater campus further towards equality and social change.
Citizenship — As stewards of our university we all have the responsibility to purposefully engage within the policies and structures of our environment to foster collective action and caring communities.
