The JMU Social Work Program has three organizations to which students can belong. These organizations provide opportunities for the development of student leadership, to foster cohesiveness among social work majors and to promote activities that serve the department, university and community. At the beginning of each academic year, early in the fall semester, students holding leadership positions must participate in Leadership Orientation & Responsibilities Training.
Each organization has a faculty liaison with whom the students work as they meet the organization’s responsibilities. In compliance with university guidelines, faculty advisers must sign off on any document that is to be printed on department letterhead/stationery as the assumption is that it is an official document representing the department and, hence, the university. The document will then be copied by departmental staff.
The expectations of each organization are presented in the links below.
