Social Work Alumni Society

Who are we?

Alumni of the WSU Social Work Department who are interested in maintaining connections with fellow alumni, the university and current students and faculty in the Social Work Department.

Mission statement

Our primary focus will be to assist in recruiting and retaining Social Work students, faculty and administrators and working in an advisory capacity with the College of Liberal Arts and the Department of Social Work to help provide a supportive and productive environment in which Social Work students can study, teach and develop as individuals.

What are our goals?

The goals of the alumni society are:

  1. Provide an opportunity for professional networking and socializing.
  2. Supporting the students and faculty of the Wright State Social Work Department.
  3. Fundraising to provide financial support to Wright State Social Work students.
  4. Provide training for licensure requirements at free or reduced price for society members.
