SSWA is also the means through which students can formally participate in the Department of Social Work's policy making. It may serve as a vehicle for organizing students to take group action in issues of concern to them.
SSWA provides an opportunity to develop group projects. Students have organized fund-raising activities for social service agencies as well as for the Student Social Work Association.
These activities have included food drives, candy sales, bake sales, and car washes
Students can contact an officer of the SSWA by emailing them. The student will need to fill out a membership form and arrange payment of the annual dues of $5.00 to secure placement on the SSWA's mailing list.
SSWA holds regular meetings throughout the academic school year.
