Together, We Can Do So Much

The Faculty of Social Work is dedicated to providing the highest quality social work education through our internationally recognized programs. Through our bachelor's and master's programs, we teach our students to identify the needs of the disadvantaged, marginalized and oppressed, and empower individuals, families, and communities to realize their full potential. Graduates from our programs find careers in areas including addictions and family counselling, mental health and addictions, child welfare, social policy research and analysis, healthcare, criminal justice, community development, newcomer support, education, activism, advocacy and empowerment.

The Faculty of Social Work provides social work courses in Regina, Saskatoon, the Yukon, Northwest Territories and throughout rural regions of Saskatchewan. We partner with the First Nations University of Canada, Yukon University, Aurora College and various Saskatchewan Regional Colleges.

Prairie Beginnings: Settlement Program

In Spring/Summer 2016 the Faculty of Social Work developed a refugee settlement program for children and youth of Saskatchewan's Arabic-speaking refugee community. Since then, we have run the program annually and expanded its scope, by removing our emphasis on the participant's spoken language, to provide services to a diverse group of refugee children and youth. In 2019, we began to develop programming for the mothers & grandmothers of Prairie Beginnings participants, with the goal of addressing some of the unique challenges faced by refugee women in our community.

Mission Statement: 

Prairie Beginnings provides support services through culturally-inclusive activities to children and families from Regina’s refugee community. With an emphasis on supporting the most recent arrivals to Canada, the program’s primary goal is to promote mental wellness and mitigate the trauma experienced by diverse refugee populations. Delivered through the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Regina, the program utilizes a strengths-based model to foster empowerment and capacity building, and enhance resiliency toward successful community integration.
