SERG logoThe Student Empowerment Resource Group (SERG) is a support network of College of Social Work faculty and staff who seek to develop programs and services that will provide basic crisis prevention and financial management assistance for students in need.  Our goal is to ensure the academic, professional, and social success of our students. We spent the fall semester gathering resources we thought would be helpful and creating an online portal through the Student Login on the CoSW home page. To view, click on Student Login, provide your USC network user name and password. Look for SERG to the far left, in the 2nd row of tabs and click. Please explore and let us know what else you need here.

On Monday, February 1, 2016, we held our first “Keepin’ It Real” open forum to find out what students needed to be successful in our program and to introduce the SERG portal and resources. Pizza and soda were provided to help fuel discussion. Led by Ms. Sudie Nallo, group members included Ms. Felissa Carter-Moore, Ms. Deborah Duvall, Ms. Rushondra James, Dr. Monique Mitchell, Ms. Mosetta Ragin, and Ms. Frances Spann. Dean Anna Scheyett welcomed the students and encouraged them to share openly and honestly about what they need. She emphasized that this was a safe space and all personal experiences would be considered confidential. Many students openly shared their challenges, ideas, and needs for success and we are very grateful for their  insights and contributions. A special thank you to our MSW students for “keepin’ it real!”. Ideas and suggestions will go back to the full group for discussion and implementation where possible.

Stay tuned for the next “Keepin’ It Real” open forum on Monday, February 29, 2016, 12:00-1:00 p.m. in Hamilton 227. We’ll bring back the plans!
