A welcome message to the Fall Class of 2022 from the president of FIFSW’s Alumni AssociationCategories: Alumni + Friends
On behalf of the FIFSW Alumni Association, I wish to congratulate you on reaching this important milestone. As graduates of the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, you are now members of our Alumni Association. It is my pleasure to welcome you to this prestigious group.
Our alumni play an important role in our Faculty, our communities in Toronto and around the world. We encourage you to continue to be involved after graduation by participating in our Association. For example, the Association hosts a virtual monthly lecture series which is open to all. Our next lecture is taking place on Wednesday, November 23rd at 6:30pm EST, titled “Harm Reduction: Not What I Thought.” Registration is now open, with further details soon to be released on the Faculty’s website.
There are many exciting ways to stay connected to the Faculty and the University, whether it’s mentoring a student, becoming a field instructor or playing an active role in the Alumni Association. As active alumni, you also have the ability to make a positive impact on this Faculty through feedback, support, mentorship and participation in FIFSW activities.
As connected alumni you will benefit from networking with colleagues and peers, and from staying informed of the latest news and developments in research and practice within our profession. The University of Toronto offers a number of additional benefits for alumni as well, including a discount on courses at the School of Continuing Studies (SCS) within five years of graduation.
We urge you to stay involved and look forward to your continued connection with FIFSW and the Alumni Association. Congratulations again on all that you have achieved.
Andria Allen, MSW, RSW President, Alumni Association
