Division of Social Work

Fostering a Spirit of Community Support

The UW Division of Social Work takes great pride in fostering a spirit of community service in its students. Opportunities abound throughout the campus and Laramie communities for students to become involved with events such as fund raising to support the Laramie Downtown Clinic and participating in UW sponsored activities such as the Big Event, which allows students to assist local residents with yard maintenance and minor home repairs, along with other community services.

Social Work’s own Epsilon Delta Chapter of the Phi Alpha Social Work Honor Society works to provide a closer bond among students of social work to promote humanitarian goals and ideals. This bond also helps students with achieving their goals in obtaining excellence in their social work education and preparation for a career in the variety of areas in social work.

Phi Alpha along with the entire UW Division of Social Work encourages excellence in scholarship and achievement for students, along with an emphasis on community service. In addition to opportunities throughout the year for students to enhance their knowledge and give back to the community, Phi Alpha provides financial support to aid students in their social work journeys.

Scholarships Provide Balance in Education and Family

Rodney Oster, a recent graduate of the Master’s program in the Division of Social Work, benefited from a scholarship, which allowed him flexibility in obtaining his degree and spending more time with his wife and family. This added layer of support gave Rodney the opportunity to stay close to his learning community at the University of Wyoming and UW – Casper, while being able to find time to share with his family’s involvement in their local community.
