Sarah Todd has been a faculty member in Carleton University’s School of Social Work since 2002. Her areas of scholarship include community practice and social work education, though her research interests have evolved to focus on the impact of new managerialism on progressive social work education.
Sarah has developed a web-based simulation program for students to learn counselling skills and has published a second edition of her Community Casework book with her co-editor, Bill Lee.
Her work in community-based social work stems from supporting grassroots youth organizations, helping them to collect data as well as implement research and evaluations for program development.
She is the Teaching Fellow for the Faculty of Public Affairs and is Graduate Supervisor in the School of Social Work. Her outstanding achievements within the School of Social Work have garnered Sarah an OCUFA Teaching Award in 2005, the Provost’s Fellowship in Teaching Award in 2018 and, most recently, the prestigious 3M National Teaching Fellowship in 2019.
