Social Work Association of Graduate Students (SWAGS)

The MSW program encourages and provides opportunities for graduate students to organize in their interests as students.  The Social Work Association of Graduate Students (SWAGS) actively promotes professional and social activities among MSW students at Florida A&M University.  Membership is open to all currently enrolled MSW students in the MSW program at Florida A&M University.  The group meets to promote scholarship, leadership, service, and community awareness of the program, the profession, the University, and its students.  Another important goal of the organization is to promote communication among students, faculty and administration.  The organization relies on membership dues to fund its annual projects, including a party for family and friends of MSW graduates in April of each year.  Additionally, the organization serves as a link to the Department’s administration and faculty.  Students are encouraged to become involved in serving as a graduate student representative on the various departmental committees, which are the major decision-making bodies of the Department of Social Work.
