Student Participation in Departmental Governance

The BSW and MSW program provides opportunities for its students to participate in formulating and modifying policies and procedures affecting academic and student affairs.  The MSW program has a student association (SWAGS) which acts as the voice of students in various departmental standing and ad-hoc committees. The BSW program also has a student association (SWAA) which acts as the voice of students in various departmental standing and ad-hoc committees. Undergraduate and graduate student representation is sought on a variety of committees, such as the MSW Self-Study Committee, the Student Issues Committee, the Research, Planning and Development Committee, the University/Community Liaison Committee, and Search and Screen Committees.  These committees are comprised of full-time faculty members plus student representatives. Student participation is vitally important for ensuring that the voice of students is heard in departmental policy decisions. Contact your SWAGS or SWAA officers for information on becoming an official graduate student representative.  Even if you are not an official graduate student representative, committee meetings are open to all MSW students, unless otherwise specified.  You may check with the MSW Program Director for information on committee meeting days, times and places or see the posted times on the MSW bulletin board located in the Department of Social Work.
