Mount Mary offers two student organizations and honor societies specifically for social work majors.
Social Work Club
The Social Work Club sponsors events for students and their families and conducts drives to benefit community organizations such as food pantries, homeless shelters and women’s shelters. It also initiates projects that address social justice issues such as human trafficking, new health care legislation and the shackling of female prisoners giving birth.
This student organization is open to all social work majors and other interested students. Contact Dr. Tuwana Wingfield for more information.
Phi Alpha Honor Society
This honor society provides a closer bond among social work students as it promotes humanitarian goals and ideals. Phi Alpha members design service projects to raise resources for organizations such as Wisconsin Community Services, SET Ministry, Horizons House, Guest House and Casa Maria.
The society fosters high standards of education for social workers and invites students who have attained excellence in scholarship and achievement in social work to join.
To be eligible, you must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 and social work cumulative GPA of 3.25 or better, have completed 9 credits in social work courses, and demonstrate leadership ability and dedication to social work practice. Contact Melinda Kiltz for more information.
