Students learn about caucuses

The Social Work Student Organization (SoWoSO) is composed of all degree-seeking students in the School. Student-created and directed caucuses within SoWoSo represent the interests of and provide support to the School community.
On Sept. 1, SoWoSO hosted its annual Caucus Fair where students can learn about and join these groups. The caucuses include Aging, Homelessness, Military, Black Student, Latino/a, LGBTQ, Macro, Mental Health, International, Criminal Justice Reform, Spirituality, Self Care, Social Justice, Social Work and Public Health Dual Degree, and Women’s.

Combat Paper Project workshop held

The SoWoSO Military Caucus helped organize a Combat Paper Project workshop, held at the School of Social Work on Sept. 14 and 15. Through this initiative, veterans use their uniforms worn in service to create works of art. The Combat Paper Project is a combination papermaking workshop and exploration of the experience of returning home from war. This workshop was co-sponsored by the School of Social Work, the Office of the Chancellor, and Carolina Performing Arts.
