About the Red Bag Series

In Fall 2016 the Red Bag Lunch & Dinner Series was created to provide an opportunity for BSW and MSW students to interact with peers, alumni, faculty and others from the University. Through collaborative efforts and shared resources, SSW students will become acclimated to the campus culture; learn how to navigate their way through the University; increase their advocacy awareness and social justice efforts; utilize support services; and develop the skills needed to thrive as a student and far beyond!
