Master of Social Work Student Association

Master of Social Work Student Association (MSWSA) Mission: The MSWSA is a student organization that ALL CSUMB MSW students are able to participate in by attending events, voting during elections, and joining committees. The MSW Student Association serves as an avenue for students to collaborate and connect with their classmates through monthly social events and public meetings. The Association also supports engaging students in NASW events, such as Lobby Days, and involving MSW Students in other Social Work events, including volunteer opportunities. In addition, the MSW Student Association serves as a mediator between the student body and faculty members, allowing for student interests and concerns to be addressed. It is our goal to bridge the gap between the two entities.
