Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work
The Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work at the University of Toronto is distinguished by its emphasis on the integration of research and practice in both the classroom and its practicum education. As the oldest school of social work in Canada, the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work has been on the cutting edge of education, policy, research and practice for more than 100 years. Recognized as one of the leading social work research Faculties in North America, we are highly involved in promoting excellence in social work practice and policy development. Teaching in the Faculty is enriched by the internationally recognized research of faculty members which is designed to help governments, agencies and communities effectively address real world challenges.
When I started my Master of Social Work degree at the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work (FIFSW), I was concerned about making ends meet. But thanks to donors like you, I received awards and financial support that allowed me to focus on my studies with less worry and finish my degree with great success.
What’s more, armed with the feeling of increased financial stability, I pursued an international practicum experience at Stanford Health Care in Palo Alto, California. This opportunity, along with establishing the Chi Delta Chapter of the Phi Alpha Honour Society, has provided me with a sense of community and an enriched learning experience.
My life has truly changed for the better because of the contributions donors like you make to FIFSW. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to pursue my dream career, at my dream school.
It is my hope and belief that my colleagues and I will go on to positively impact the lives of our clients and their families, support the most vulnerable and fight the injustices we see and learn about every day. Your support makes it all possible. Thank you.
