The University of Calgary Faculty of Social Work is the largest school of social work in Canada. We are consistently ranked among the top 15 schools in north America in terms of research productivity. Our research contributes to a greater understanding of complex social issues while making a difference in the lives of millions of people local, nationally and internationally.

Our faculty’s research agenda often has a dual focus. Some of our researchers look to influence policy by addressing the social determinants that underlie so many social issues. Other researchers search for impactful solutions to advance the profession right now.

Our innovative, interdisciplinary research demands meaningful community engagement with a focus on social justice and human rights.

Our faculty’s research is an integral part of the University of Calgary’s Eyes High research strategy and aligns with two of the University of Calgary’s research strategies: Human Dynamics in a Changing World and Brain and Mental Health.

As part of the Eyes High strategy, the University of Calgary became one of the top 10 universities under 50 years of age in 2014. We are recognized as a global intellectual hub powered by our remarkable faculty, students, staff and community partners.
