Greetings from our CSULB Associated Students of Social Work!

By Venetta Campbell, Faculty Advisor to the Associated Students of Social Work (ASSW)

As we all begin the 2018-2019 school year, the members of the ASSW Board and I extend a warm welcome to everyone and again invite all undergraduate and graduate students to join our exciting student organization.  Membership is free!  Your active participation in this vibrant student organization is an excellent way to network with peers and faculty, discuss common interests in social work and social justice, get useful information, and participate in our social events and projects.  Plus...it’s a lot of fun!

Starting this Fall semester, ASSW will be organizing general meetings to accommodate both our DAYTIME and EVENING students:

  • For our students attending classes during the DAY, General Membership meetings will be held on the 2nd week of each month on Monday from 12:30-1:00pm downstairs in the SSPA Building in our Social Work Student Cente
    • October 8th, November 5th, and December 3rd
  • For students attending classes in the EVENING, we will have General Membership meetings on the 2nd week of each month on Wednesday from 4:30-5:00pm downstairs in our Social Work Student Cente.
    • October 10th, November 7th, December 5th

Also, the following student organizations and groups operate under the auspices of the ASSW: 

  • Asian and Pacific Islander Students of Social Work Association
  • Jane Addams Committee
  • Tessie Cleveland Committee
  • Latino Students of Social Work Network
  • Active Minds
  • Association for Social Work with Groups
  • Macro Social Work Network

Social work students are welcome to join one or more of these Committees and groups.  Please check our ASSW bulletin board and BeachBoard for announcements of each committee’s events throughout the semester. Our new ASSW Executive Board is working hard on planning exciting events for the academic year – and we need your ideas!   

We have many other activities planned later this semester to benefit our school and local social service agencies. 

ASSW will continue to sell our awesome “CSULB School of Social Work” t-shirts, zip-ups, and hoodies as our ASSW group fundraiser. Watch for announcements of our apparel sale dates throughout the semester. The proceeds from these sales help support the Association’s numerous projects during the academic year helping our local community.  We count on your support for ASSW and our school! 

This Fall semester we will have our annual SOCIAL WORK WELCOME DAY gathering on:

    • Monday, September 17th from 12:00-2:00PM on the SSPA Lawn area
    • Monday, September 17th from 5:00-7:00PM in the SW Student Center
    • Saturday, September 22nd from 12:00-2:00PM in the SW Student Center

Pizza and drinks will be provided along with raffle prizes. There will also be an opportunity to purchase our “CSULB School of Social Work” apparel at each of these events. Please come by and learn about our student organizations!

The ASSW Board joins me in wishing all of you a great and productive Fall Semester in our exciting CSULB School of Social Work!  We hope to see you at our next ASSW meeting!
