BSW Student Organizations

Social Work Club

The social work club works to bring together people of all majors to work on social justice issues while having fun. We have meetings at St. Kate's and St. Thomas about every other week. We do service projects on and off campus, fund raise, aid in planning Social Work day at The Capital and inform students who are interested in the social work major what social work is.
