Associated Masters of Social Work Students of Wyoming (AMSW2)

The purpose of AMSW2 is to unite the student body and faculty in the Master's of Social Work program at the University of Wyoming and to further students as professionals.

The objective of AMSW2 is to meet its stated purpose through group meetings, study groups, social activities, in-services, community connections/projects, committee work, and offering feedback to the social work faculty in order to enhance the MSW program. Contact Dr. Mahapatra for more information at nmahapat@uwyo.edu.


Associated Students of Social Work (ASSW)

Associated Students of Social Work is a student organization comprised of future social workers.  Participating in community service and fundraising events, members strive to help local citizens in need.  Past activities include raising funds for the fight against breast cancer,  collecting diapers of the families of Mercer House, collecting supplies for U.S. troops stationed abroad, cooking and serving breakfast at the Casper Rescue Mission, and raising funds to benefit local agencies.

The monthly meetings allow students to gather with their peers in a setting outside of the classroom, which often encourages friendships to form between social work students.  A great addition to the resume, ASSW is also an effective networking tool within the social work profession.

For more information, contact Instructor Roe at sroe2@uwyo.edu.
