Wilfrid Laurier University's Faculty of Social Work

Since its inception in 1966, the Lyle S. Hallman Faculty of Social Work (FSW) has developed and maintained a reputation for excellence.

In September 2006, the faculty opened its doors at the historic St. Jerome’s College/High School, in the heart of downtown Kitchener just four kilometers from the Waterloo campus. Home to our Master of Social Work (MSW) and PhD programs, the Laurier FSW's Kitchener location is a 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility, housing seven classrooms (including a unique circular classroom for the MSW Aboriginal Field of Study), a computer lab, a 2,000 square foot library, an interview-viewing room, a large conference/lecture hall, a community meeting space, a student lounge, and a spiritual room.

The FSW’s downtown Kitchener location places us in proximity to numerous community agencies, and we enjoy strong partnerships with the social services sector both in research and in field opportunities for students. The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program on Laurier's Brantford campus started in September 2014 and we hope to develop similarly strong partnerships with the social services sector, as well as with Six Nations of the Grand River.

The FSW is governed through a committee structure that includes representation from faculty, students, field instructors and alumni. We are committed to providing a friendly, respectful and inclusive learning environment. Whether you are a prospective or current student, field instructor, alumnus, or community partner, we hope you find information on the website helpful and we welcome your feedback.
