“More than just a mission statement” — Dean Dexter Voisin discusses his new role at FIFSW


Dean Dexter Voisin was recently profiled in an article written by Ron Fanfair for Share, a weekly community newspaper serving the Black and Caribbean community. The piece is also available on his personal website.

Voisin joined the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social work in July 2019 and is the Faculty’s first Black dean.

“All Schools of Social Work, in general, have similar missions on paper when they talk about social justice, inclusion, social uplift and inequality,” Voisin told Fanfair. “I, however, found that this faculty is more than just a mission statement on paper. It has legs and an impressive cohort of faculty who are doing work with the community.”
