At the Faculty of Social Work Faculty of Social Work at Wilfrid Laurier University, I learnt to use research as a tool to affect meaningful social change by asking important questions about our structures, our systems and our institutions. Through critical research I learnt how to engage in progressive work that challenges inequality and strives for valuable social transformation. One of the best assets of the Faculty of Social Work at Wilfrid Laurier University is its faculty, (support) staff and students, but especially the faculty. I found them to be incredibly knowledgeable, caring and supportive and they helped make my six years at Laurier, Kitchener Campus to be truly great.
