Clubs & Organizations, Bachelor of Social Work
Elizabeth Braccia ‘14
"Being part of the BSW Club has allowed me to participate in many school events that I might not have and has given me the chance to get to know my classmates. The club has been one of the most rewarding parts of my experience at Widener."
Take Back the Night
Each year members of the BSW Club coordinate Take Back the Night, which raises awareness of sexual assault and domestic violence.
Social work (BSW) majors develop supportive relationships with other students through a variety of clubs and organizations. They also have the opportunity to develop professional networking relationships through local, regional, and national conferences and workshops.
Below are a few social work clubs and organizations offered to Widener students.
The BSW Club
The Bachelor of Social Work Club provides a setting for students to explore social work outside of the classroom. The BSW Club engages in a variety of social and service-orientated projects designed and implemented by students. Throughout the year, club members reach out to provide much needed community service to the Widener community and the residents of Chester and surrounding areas.
National Association of Black Social Workers (NABSW) Student Chapter
Widener’s Chapter of NABSW is a joint undergraduate/graduate student organization for those of African descent involved in social support, networking, and community service. The group advocates for social change, justice, and human development of African people here in the United States and throughout the world.
Phi Alpha ΦΑ National Social Work Honor Society
The social work honor society creates a closer bond among Widener students and helps increase civic engagement and networking opportunities. Phi Alpha fosters high standards of education for social workers and those who have attained excellence in scholarship and achievement in social work.
