As classes start for the 2021-22 school year, the VCU School of Social Work marks our 104th year of educating future social workers.
We welcome a little over 1,100 students across our B.S.W., M.S.W. and Ph.D. programs – the next wave of practitioners, policy-makers, researchers and educators that our profession and society so urgently need.
Here is some helpful information to help keep students updated and involved.
OSS is the school’s in-house academic support team. It has numerous supports and services to empower students to stay on course to graduation. Student success advisors will serve as a sounding board and referral source for academic and personal issues, stressing flexibility and, above all, empathy.
OSS oversees programs, events and student organizations within the school; manages processes and provides assistance regarding school and university scholarships for continuing students; sponsors career and job preparation workshops and networking; and addresses questions or concerns around school policies or documents.
For more information or to find out who your student success advisor is, contact OSS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The school has five student associations: the B.S.W. Student Association, the M.S.W. Student Association, the Doctoral Student Association, the Association of Black Social Workers and the Queer & Trans Social Workers at VCU. To learn more about an organization, email email@example.com.
