Working to support the relationship between the SSW and its alumni by providing continuing education, direct support to students, and outreach to alumni.
Each year, the Alumni Association supports social work students by providing:
- Annual Outstanding Graduating Student Award honoring a student who has exceeded the requirements of his/her educational program.
- Four annual book scholarships to reduce the burden of necessary text books, a difficult expense for incoming students.
- Support to student organizations and events throughout the year.
Continuing Education Event Series
The Alumni Association provides social work professionals with low-cost, continuing education opportunities. Watch the SSW Calendar for upcoming seminars. If you are interested in presenting or if you would like to get email alerts about events, please contact us. (The nominal cost of attending continuing education events goes directly into the book scholarship fund!)
