Full-time social worker to support Renison students and residents

Reta Franci, Student Services Social Worker

We are committed to the provision of exceptional, unique and individualized student support services at Renison University College.  We recognize and respond to the holistic (emotional, physical, social, spiritual and legal) needs of each person.

We believe that everyone who comes for service has well-developed skills and strengths for survival, growth and change. We recognize and respect that individuals are the experts of their own lives. We work from an anti-oppressive framework in which the student and Social Worker work collaboratively around the issues brought to the sessions. Together we will work to support and promote informed decisions.

Scope of service includes:

  1. Counselling & support
  2. Groups/workshops (Wellness Wednesdays)
  3. Education
  4. Advocacy
  5. Referrals to appropriate campus and/or community resources

Services are available to students living in residence and/or registered here at Renison (including the MSW program). Students can access up to 4-6 sessions of individual counselling per term.
