MSW Student Leadership

While attending the College of Social Work, our students are given countless opportunities to be leaders on campus through active involvement in the Dean’s Student Advisory Council, Social Work Student Association/Black Social Work Student Association, the Social Work Honor Society, and other student groups.

  • Dean’s Student Advisory Council
    The Dean’s Student Advisory Council’s (DSAC) purpose is to foster communication and collaboration between the administration, faculty, staff, and students of the College of Social Work at the University of South Carolina.Its goals are to provide an avenue for the concerns of students to be addressed to the faculty, staff, and administration of the College of Social Work; create a collaborative environment in which students and administration, faculty, and staff can work together for the betterment of the College of Social Work;to build student collaboration across the degree granting programs and statuses within those programs at the College of Social Work; as well as to provide an avenue for the representation of the student body of the College of Social Work to the staff, faculty, and administration of the College of Social Work.

  • Phi Alpha Social Work Honor Society
    Phi Alpha National Social Work Honor Society provides an opportunity for MSW students who have excelled in Social Work scholarship to form bonds and promote social work values. The Kappa Psi chapter at USC received its charter in 2007 and is a great opportunity to be involved in the College of Social Work and receive recognition for your scholastic achievements.

  • Social Work Student Association/Black Social Work Student Association
    The purpose of the Social Work Student Association (SWSA) is to promote interest in social work and social work issues through association with others who are interested in this field; to provide supplemental educational experiences for students; to act as an advocate for students in academic and administrative matters; and to enhance social interaction among membership. Membership is open to any MSW student registered full-time or part-time in the College of Social Work at the University of South Carolina. The organization is funded through USC Student Government and fundraising projects. Four officers of the association--the president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer--are elected annually by the College of Social Work's student body from among the student population.

    Traditionally, the goal of the BSWSA was to facilitate open dialogue and retention of MSW students of color; promote academic excellence, scholastic networks, and cultural diversity; foster professional and recreational activities; as well as provide a nurturing environment and advocate for students. This group is currently part of the SWSA but could be a separate association if students so desire.
