The Social Work Association is student-led, chartered by the college, and serves as an informal vehicle for getting acquainted with other social work students, faculty, and social workers in the local community. Over the years, the association has provided a forum for a variety of social, professional-development, and community-service activities. Opportunities to develop both leadership skills and important networks in a professional field make the association an active club.
The Social Work Advisory Council assists in maintaining awareness of new developments in the field. The council consists of practicing social workers, a social work student, and the social work faculty.
The program's Lambda Theta chapter of the Phi Alpha National Social Work Honor Society serves to promote excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service.
