The Student Social Work Association (SSWA)

The Student Social Work Association (SSWA) is our undergraduate student organization. The purpose of SSWA is to educate students about the Social Work profession, provide support to Social Work undergraduate students, and encourage participation in Social Welfare programs in the community and on campus.

Students who are majoring or minoring in Social Work can belong to SSWA. In order to meet the needs of our diverse student members, the organization currently meets twice a month, once during the day on Mondays and once on Sunday afternoon. So far this academic year, we have participated in the FAMU Homecoming Parade and had a SSWA Potluck/Social. We are currently planning a fundraiser kickball game to raise money for the homeless shelter, and some of our members are planning to volunteer their time as tutors at Boys' Town.

If you want additional information about SSWA, please email Dr. Laura Myers, the SSWA faculty advisor, at laura.myers@famu.edu or call 850-561-2254.
