UNC School of Social Work relies on its alumni and friends for support in many ways — donations, service as field instructors and supervisors, recruitment of new students, mentorship of current students through speaking opportunities, and other activities.
More than 6,000 social work professionals have earned their MSW and Ph.D. degrees from our School. We encourage all alumni to stay connected with the School and to participate in alumni opportunities for networking:
- Subscribe to SSW’s monthly email newsletter (it’s free!)
- Follow SSW on social media
- Join the School’s LinkedIn networking group
- Serve on the SSW Alumni Council
- Enroll in continuing education opportunities
- Share your professional and personal news with the School
We also need financial support — at all levels, from $5 to $5 million — from our alumni and friends. For our alumni, an annual donation of any amount is one way to demonstrate that you believe in your School, you are proud of its national ranking, and you want to help current students with scholarship support (especially if you received a scholarship as a student!). For our friends, your gift to the School helps to strengthen social work programs that reach every county in North Carolina (and extend globally, too).
