Social work has a strong tradition of collaborative engagement. We have a strong alumni and we value highly our local, national and international relationships.

Our commitment to community engagement recognizes the importance of our history, creates opportunities for purposeful collaboration and builds on our strengths to maximise opportunities:

Building upon a strong foundation

  • Work alongside our alumni to maximise opportunities
  • Work towards the strengthening of the alumni and their critical presence within the Department and identify funding opportunities to support the alumni administratively

Supporting disciplinary leadership

  • Demonstrate our commitment to disciplinary leadership through the development of strategic alliances with key international schools of social work
  • Establish key partnerships to support professional education and development

Promoting knowledge engagement

  • Support and coordinate research through the profiling of social work publications
  • Focus attention on practice research and the ways in which academic and field partnerships can support the transformation of research into policy and practice
