All MSW students are eligible to join the Graduate Social Work Organization, an organization within the School of Social Work. Our fundamental purpose is to become engaged in the community in a way that creates cohesion among the multiple graduate-level MSW cohorts. GSWO’s mission is to combat social injustice in the community through advocacy, research, and direct action. Our activities and events are student-generated and student-led.
