Social Work Constituency Council

The Social Work Constituency Council (SWCC) is bringing the heart of social work to the UTA School of Social Work through fundraising, volunteering, and advocacy. The SWCC’s 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 this year! We hope that you join us in making a difference around campus and in our community.

For more information about the SWCC, please e-mail us at uta.swcc@gmail.com or join us on Mavorgs
