University of Connecticut


The Alumni Relations Office and the Alumni Association of the UConn School of Social Work are integral components of the academic community. The Association and the Alumni Relations Office are dedicated to promoting the welfare and excellence of the School and to fostering mutually supportive relationships with alumni, faculty, students and the community-at-large. The School of Social Work Alumni Association is a non-dues paying group – all graduates of the SSW become members upon earning their degree. Established in 1990, the organization has developed into a vibrant and dynamic group serving greater than 6800 graduate-members. The Board of Directors, a dedicated group of individuals elected by SSW alumni, meets monthly from September through May. The combined efforts and energies of the Alumni Relations Office, Alumni Association and Alumni Board are devoted to the following objectives:

  • Supporting the School’s mission to promote social and economic justice, and the improvement of human well being
  • Supporting the School’s outreach and public engagement efforts
  • Fostering community support and advocating for the University, the School of Social Work, and the social work profession
  • Fostering a strong relationship with alumni and students to engage them in the SSW Alumni Association, including the Alumni Directory
  • Promoting fundraising activities to establish an independent source of funds available for scholarships and various alumni activities
  • Offering a special alumni registration rate for STEP Professional Development programs
