Welcome | Skwúls te Mestíyexw-Syó:s qas te Smomíyelhtel

At UFV's School of Social Work and Human Services, choose to study from one of our student-centered programs where you contribute to the knowledge base of social work through partnerships and collaborative research with professional and local communities. 

The UFV Social Work degree programs prepare students for social work practice reflecting principles of social justice, equality, and respect for diversity. The programs address the structural barriers that prevent people from reaching their full potential.

With a commitment to lifelong learning and a critical analysis of oppression, graduates will have the knowledge, skills, and professional social work values necessary to work collaboratively with individuals, families, groups, and communities in diverse and cross-cultural environments.

  1. Social work education is a critical process that respects diverse sources and forms of knowledge while encouraging dissent. We are committed to scholarship including debate on social work and social welfare, with particular attention to how social problems come to be defined and addressed.

  2. All individuals, families, groups, and communities are entitled to be treated with respect, with justice, and without discrimination. To that end, we seek to provide equitable educational opportunities and participation of those groups experiencing systemic oppression. Valuing our community base, we seek to promote social change.

  3. We encourage the use of evidence-based practice and contribution to the knowledge base of social work.
