Social Work Constituency Council

The Social Work Constituency Council’s (SWCC) goal is to connect UTA's social work students (undergraduate, graduate and PhD) to their campus. Members of this amazing organization get to represent their school, be active in their field of study and gain some great experience for their futures as social workers! The only qualification that is required to be a part of this organization is the desire to make a difference in the community around you! The SWCC team looks forward to working with you! We hope that you join us in making a difference around campus and in our community.

For more information about the SWCC, please contact Jennifer Malone at or join us on Mavorgs

Gerontology Organization

The Gerontology Organization (GO) is a registered UTA student organization for all social work students, BSW, MSW or PhD levels, who want to gain leadership and practice skills in geriatric and gerontology social work to complement their academic work. Student members in GO create a better quality of life for older adults while building a strong foundation for the future, as leaders in the field of Social Work. The faculty advisor is Dr. Gail Adorno,

What We Do
GO gives social work undergraduate and graduate students a place to come together to explore their interests and enhance their skills in working with older adults. GO provides opportunities to enrich students' collegiate experience in the School of Social Work at UTA through networking and collaboration with UTA School of Social Work faculty and community geriatric social workers (e.g., clinicians, case managers, aging agency administrators) through sponsored events, guest speakers at meetings, volunteering with older adults, and fundraising activities. We also raise awareness of the workforce needs for trained social workers to practice with older adults in the DFW community and beyond.
