Student Life

The School of Social Work sponsors service projects and other activities for the social work student body. These, and other social work program volunteer projects, provide pre-professional experiences that enhance the student's confidence and competence through actual "hands on" experiences. These real life experiences also help the student decide if social work is the profession for them.
