Word-Cloud Vision




The School of Social Work at McMaster is creating a word-cloud vision - and we want your words!

Over the past months we've been gathering together words/ terms/ phrases that express values, commitments and practices that are important to people connected to the McMaster School of Social Work, and about which we hope to achieve some more-or-less consensus.

We now have these words/ terms/ phrases collected in these word clouds...

 Ways of Asking Ways of Knowing

...and we want invite all members of the School community to contribute to articulating and expanding a vision of our School.

  • Tell us which three words or phrases resonate most strongly for you (that you most like, that you think describe the best of Social Work at McMaster, or capture our aspirations...)
  • Add three words or phrases that are missing - and say a bit about why these are important (where possible, choose words that are accessible; words in languages other than English

    (with translation!)

     are welcome...)
  • If you have a question about a word or phrase, ask it...  if something troubles you, say why... 

We'll compile comments on the word clouds and let everyone see how it's evolving over the next few months.
