The Mission of the School of Social Work at King's University College at Western University is to provide a learning environment characterized by excellence in social work education directed toward developing and fostering ethical and competent professional practitioners, at both the beginning and advanced levels, who recognize the interrelatedness of human needs, social structures and oppressive conditions in their practice with diverse populations. (Approved by School Council September 24, 2020)


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.
