The mission of the BCSSW Alumni Association is to represent alumni and facilitate their continued commitment and involvement in the activities and direction of the school, the social work profession, and the social welfare field. All alumni are welcome to participate as board members, committee members, or help out with events.

Aulmni Board

The BC Social Work Alumni Association board is comprised of elected alumni representatives that meet monthly during the school year and partner with the following departments to support services and programs for the School of Social Work:

  • Career Services: November Networking Event, Mock Interviewing, Recruitment Fair, BCSSW LinkedIn Group
  • Continuing Education: Fall and Spring Workshops
  • Admissions & Recruitment: Information Sessions, Graduate School Fairs, Welcome Reception
  • Communications & Events: Alumni Magazine, E-news, Annual Alumni Awards, and other events
  • SSW Executive Board

Board meetings are open and we encourage you to attend to see how you can get involved with SSW as an alum. Meetings are generally the last Monday of the month, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. For more information, please email Alumni Services at least a week before the meeting date so we can include you in our food numbers and confirm the location of the meeting.

Elections for open Board and Officer slots are planned for April. The Board strives to recruit Alumni representation to achieve Board composition including: varied years of graduation; Clinical and Macro graduates; MSW and PhD graduates; and Alumni whose current field of practice is representative of the current academic concentrations: Children, Youth & Families; Health/Mental Health; Global Studies; and Older Adults. Board Members are elected for up to three-year terms, with one-third of the Board elected annually. If interested in serving on the Board, please email Alumni Services.
