M.S.W. Student Life
Our diverse M.S.W. student body forms a passionate community across all the campuses of the Graduate School of Social Service. We offer many opportunities to engage with your fellow students, faculty and administrators, exchange ideas and become an agent of change in your own life.
STUDENT CONGRESS / STUDENT GOVERNMENT ASSOCIATION
Members of GSS - administrators, faculty members and students - have a right to participate in decisions that affect the school community. Joining the Student Congress is one of the key ways you can collaborate in the school's administration.
The Congress also offers you an opportunity to network with other students. Sharing ideas and solving community problemes enrich your social work education.
The Lincoln Center and Westchester campuses each have their own Student Congress. Meetings begin in September and are held throughout the academic year.
Every year, the Student Congress chooses students to participate on a curriculum committee. The group evaluates and helps develop the curriculum for the M.S.W. program. Being part of the committee allows you to make important contributions to the future of the social work profession.
GSS and Fordham University are home to a diverse range of student groups, including:
- Asian Students
- Black Students
- Hispanic/Latino Students
- LGBT Students
- a student group devoted to issues around anti-racism and
- a group dedicated to empowering women and girls.
LEARNED LUNCHES SPEAKERS' FORUMS
Students and administrators organize a fascinating series of talks all year called Learned Lunches. Invited speakers address some of today's most critical and timely issues at our Lincoln Center and Westchester campuses. Bring your lunch and join the discussion.
