The purpose of the Social Work Association is to encourage and promote service not only throughout the university, and surrounding community, but also throughout the world. Students will be working on community service projects during the year. Social Work majors are encouraged to participate in the club activities, however membership is open to all Alvernia students.
Alvernia’s Zeta Upsilon chapter of Phi Alpha provides a closer bond among students of social work, and is dedicated to the promotion of humanitarian goals and ideals. Students who have achieved an overall grade point average of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) and who have achieved a 3.25 grade point average in required social work courses are invited to apply for membership.
