SoWoSO

SoWoSO (Social Work Student Organization) is our School’s primary student leadership group. It is composed of caucuses — smaller groups within SoWoSO that promote areas of special interest through discussions, activities, and events.

Most caucuses focus on opportunities for education and service. They provide a collective voice for students’ concerns. They also help students develop leadership skills, build professional networks, and enjoy social occasions as a group.

SoWoSO caucuses vary from year to year, depending on students’ interests. This list includes caucuses that have been active in previous years:

  • Aging Caucus
  • Black Student Caucus
  • Child Welfare Caucus
  • Criminal Justice Reform Caucus
  • Diversity Caucus
  • LGBTQ+ Caucus
  • Homelessness Caucus
  • International Caucus
  • Latinx Student Caucus
  • Macro Social Work Caucus
  • Men’s Caucus
  • Mental Health Caucus
  • Military Caucus
  • Neurodiversity Caucus
  • Self Care Caucus
  • Social Justice Caucus
  • MSW/MPH Dual Degree Caucus
  • Spirituality Caucus
  • Substance Use & Addictions Caucus
  • Women’s Caucus

Collectively, SoWoSO members nominate graduation speakers, select recipients of School awards for excellence in teaching and mentoring, and host student activities. SoWoSO maintains its own Google Groups forum, which is a great way to learn more about the organization and find information on its current activities.
