  • Unfortunately due to COVID-19 and the recommendations of the CDC all classes were moved online and no on campus events or events involving organizations affiliated with the school are currently allowed to take place.

  • If you have any questions or concerns about anything please feel free to reach out to any of the leadership team or our advisor, Elizabeth Fowler at edfowler@ualr.edu

  • SSWO still aims to support the UALR student body and the school of social work. Please feel free to reach out to any of us anytime.
