Student Social Work Association
The purpose of the SSWA is to initiate and maintain communications among social work students, faculty and the general public in effort to serve as a resource for united action on issues of social concern. The SSWA, a recognized UMSL Student Association, also provides undergraduate social work students with many opportunities to develop leadership and teamwork skills, to get involved on campus and in the community through volunteering, serving on committees and filling elected officer positions within the association.
Who We Are
The SSWA is a university organization made up of elected/appointed officers, board members, a faculty advisor and the students of UMSL's social work program.
Our Mission Statement
The mission of the SSWA is to enhance the knowledge of students, faculty & the community by developing programs, providing services, assisting in building connections, and positively representing the School of Social Work.
If you are an UMSL undergraduate or graduate social work student who is interested in promoting university and SSWA activities that will enhance student education, personal growth and community involvement, the officers of the SSWA encourage and welcome your active involvement within our organization.
What We Do
Through SSWA, 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 SSWA will be worth your time!
