Social Work: Student Societies and Associations

Phi Alpha National Honor Society

The Phi Alpha National Honor Society seeks to recognize and promote scholastic achievement in the social work program.  Our chapter advances the profession of social work by recognizing service, leadership and academic excellence.

The criteria for membership are a 3.0 GPA overall and a 3.25 GPA in the social work major, after having completed at least 15 social work credits. The general practice is to induct students during their last term as juniors or during their senior year.  Inductions take place during the spring term. Once inducted, membership continues indefinitely.

Social Work Association

The Social Work Association offers students in the social work program worthwhile activities that can enhance their resumes. Throughout the course of the year, members, along with volunteering faculty, work side-by-side for various causes and welcome new opportunities to enhance future careers in social work.
