The Undergraduate Social Welfare
Alliance (USWA) acts as a representing body of all students within the undergraduate
program. We act as a voice for students and seek to
establish an engaged community connected to our program and University. To be in touch with any of the officers, email: sbu@firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to USWA, there are also BSW Student Representatives who are the voice for their classmates. They represent the BSW students at SSW committee meetings that are chaired by Faculty within the School. The committees and student representatives are listed down below (following the USWA Officer information).
Meet your USWA Officers for 2017-2018:
Jack McKillop - President
My name is Alexander McKillop, but everybody calls me Jack (long story). I am thrilled to be part of an industrious and ambitious team of student leaders this year, comprising the 2017-2018 USWA e-board. I have three years of experience in the field of substance abuse, and I am currently a Senior BSW candidate. I also serve as New York State's BSW representative for the National Association of Social Workers. I am passionate about social justice, and I hope to encourage all BSW students to get involved with USWA this year! We want to create opportunities for students to experience service, education, and advocacy outside of the classroom and internship settings. Please, do not hesitate to reach out to email@example.com with any ideas, questions, or concerns! We hope to hear from you!
Andrea Fonti - Vice President
Hello everyone! I am a second year BSW student. Ever since I was little, my passion has been to help others. As Vice President of USWA, I am looking forward to meeting and collaborating with as many students as we can for the next semester. I can't wait for the new semester to start so we can hear all the ideas from the incoming BSW students and the returning second year students, on the types of activities and events you would like to participate in this year. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to e-mail me or any of the other e-board members at: firstname.lastname@example.org
