The Auburn University Association of Social Workers, (AASSW), commonly referred to as "The Social Work Club," was first chartered in 1978 and has been active since that time. While a Social Work faculty member serves as advisor to the group, the club functions under student organization and leadership. All students, regardless of their major are invited to attend club meetings and involve themselves in the club's service projects. However, only Social Work majors may serve as officers.
The organization elects officers in the fall who take office at the beginning of the calendar year and serve throughout the year. 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.
One of their recent accomplishments was the development of a list-serve through which Social Work students could stay in touch and post messages of general interest to each other. This has been a contribution to the whole Social Work Program, as faculty members also post information of general interest to Social Work students on the list-serve.
