Student Social Work Organization (SSWO)

The mission of the organization is to encourage professional development and social experience for social work majors and those considering the major, so membership is open to any student on campus.  To carry out that mission, students promote unity and fellowship among the university, the community, and the social work students through service learning activities in the community.  The SSWO-Fargo will also encourage students to expand their educational experiences through guest speakers, panels, conferences, and other activities.  The SSWO-Fargo will also promote the visibility of the MSU/NDSU dual degree Social Work/HDFS program through activities on campus and in the community.  The SSWO-Fargo also develops leadership skills through the officers of the organization, as well as those who chair and serve on committees.
