There is no greater expression of community at The School of Social Welfare than our commencement ceremony. To recognize students that have- through voluntary service, activism and advocacy, or other forms of civic engagement helped address or make positive change around a social issue, we invite you to consider having your achievements recognized by wearing a Citrus Green color cord at the commencement ceremony. SSW students who have served in the military may wear a triple honor cord of red, white and blue if they choose to do so. 

Examples of service include, but are not limited to work with USWA, GSG, Leadership Symposium, Disaster Relief etc.

Cords vary in price from $4.00 -18.00 and can be purchased online at any vendor that sells graduation regalia.
