SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK

 

Student Organization of Social Work (SOSW) 

The purpose of SOSW is to develop and maintain communications among social work students, faculty, and the general public and provide a means for united action on issues of social concern. SOSW also provides undergraduate social work students with many opportunities to become involved on campus and in the community through volunteering, serving on committees, and becoming elected officers.

Through SOSW, you are given the opportunity to work with (and get to know) your social work peers, faculty and community - which can be one of the most rewarding and beneficial things you do while in college. We are a group of individuals committed to the same cause - helping others. Getting involved in SOSW will be worth your time!

The officers of the Student Organization of Social Work encourage all undergraduate social work majors to join SOSW.
