King’s School of Social Work is committed to academic excellence and the promotion of equity, diversity, inclusion, and decolonization. In response to social work’s complicity in the oppression, marginalization and disenfranchisement of peoples, we are committed to decolonizing and indigenizing curricular content, pedagogies, policies and processes. Students are actively engaged in an inclusive and collaborative learning environment. The aim is to develop their professional and practice knowledge, skills, and values to become ethical, critically reflective, and proficient future practitioners, researchers and advocates for social justice and transformative change within the broader community.

The School of Social Work and King's University College welcomes applications from all qualified individuals. Our diversity has many different faces and expressions including, but not limited to, age, colour, culture, disability/non-disability status, ethnic or linguistic origin, gender, health status, heritage, immigration status, geographic origin, race, religious and spiritual beliefs, political orientation, gender and sexual identities, and socioeconomic status.
The School of Social Work at King's University College recognizes and acknowledges that we are located in the traditional territories of Indigenous peoples. Given this complex history, we will treat the land and Indigenous people with respect and care, and the School of Social Work will continue to enlarge its commitment to incorporating indigenous knowledge and practice into the curriculum.
