Auburn University Association of Social Workers

Commonly referred to as "The Social Work Club," the AASSW welcomes all students, regardless of major.

The organization elects officers in the fall who take office at the beginning of the calendar year and serve throughout the year. Only social work majors may serve as officers. Meetings are typically held on a bi-weekly basis, with a speaker at one of the meetings each month and a club activity at the other meeting.
