Message from the Dean | July 14, 2021

Dear FIFSW Community,

I am following up on the announcement that U of T and Case Western Reserve University just released.

I want you to know that this has been one of the most challenging decisions I have ever had to make in my career. A tough decision because I very much enjoy working with the FIFSW, University, and Toronto communities.  I made this choice because it is in the best interest of my family.

It has been a sincere honour to serve as your dean for the past two years, and I am incredibly proud of what we have accomplished together over this time.

I have been working with the Office of the Provost to support a smooth and productive transition. However, there is a lot more for us to accomplish together over the next six months. I will continue to work hard every day for the Faculty, University, and community to ensure that we continue to advance our mission.

In service,


Dexter Voisin
Dean and Professor
Sandra Rotman Chair in Social Work
