Alumni Welcome from the President

Welcome! As a graduate of the School of Social Work, I am honored to be elected president of the School of Social Work Alumni Organization (SSWAO). The SSWAO is dedicated to supporting students, alumni, faculty and staff of the School of Social Work through networking, advising, fundraising, and volunteering. By being a member of the SSWAO, you have opportunities to meet social workers in a variety of fields in both formal and casual settings. You help play a part in welcoming new social workers to the field and encouraging social work students as they find their niche in the social work community. The SSWAO is actively involved in the social work community by participating in and/or hosting many activities including:

  1. Welcome Back BBQ
  2. Orientations
  3. Networking events
  4. Mentoring
  5. And many more!

Whether you are a new graduate or are retired, we would love to have you become a member of the SSWAO. By joining the SSWAO, a portion of your dues will go directly to support the social work organization, which largely contributes to a scholarship awarded on behalf of the SSWAO. If you are interested in joining, please complete theĀ online application form. Furthermore, we are always looking for hard working, dedicated members to join our Board of Directors. If you are interested in serving as a member of the Board, please contact me at

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding membership, events or mentoring I would love to hear from you. Please e-mail me at

We look forward to serving students, alumni, faculty and staff of the School of Social Work in the coming year.

Virginia Mohammed, President
MU SSW Alumni Organization
