SSWA (for BSW students)

The undergraduate Student Social Work Association (SSWA) is devoted to creating a positive educational and social atmosphere for social work students.  The extracurricular activities enhance students' professional development as social workers.  SSWA meets on a monthly basis, and announcements about scheduled meetings are made in social work classes.  Membership dues are $10 per academic year, and membership is open to all declared social work majors and minors.  An SSWA membership allows participation in all SSWA sponsored activities and committees and provides opportunities:

  • to practice leadership skills by becoming an officer in the organization.

  • to increase awareness of social and ethical issues while engaging in a hands-on experience in solving problems in today's society.

  • to serve on departmental committees as a student representative.

If you wish to become a member, please complete the Membership Application and then turn the application and your dues into one of the officers or to the SSWA mailbox in Lyle House. Please see the information below for the list of current officers.
