School of Social Work Graduate Student Association (SSWGSA)

Welcome to the Rutgers School of Social Work Graduate Student Association (SSWGSA). If you are a graduate student, you are automatically enrolled as a member.

Established in 2005, the SSWGSA is a vibrant association that:

  • Supports and encourages social, academic, and professional development of social work best practices by MSW and PhD students
  • Serves as a conduit for dialogue between students, faculty, and administration
  • Advocates on behalf of the student body to the administration

SSWGSA Executive Council

The SSWGSA executive council meets once a month, September through May. Elections are held every spring, and officers serve a 12-month term that begins in May. Interested in holding a council position? Email us at
