Introduction

The purpose of the Loras College Social Work Club is to provide a supportive organization for social work majors and those individuals interested in social justice within our community. The academic life of Social Work Club members is enhanced through the activities and projects associated with the club.

The Loras College Social Work Club is run by social work majors and supervised by social work faculty. While many club members are social work majors, the club is open to participation by all students on campus regardless of major.  In fact, the more varied the interests and majors of club members are, the more creative ideas are, and more relationships are formed between students.  The club holds separate bi-weekly meetings.  The purpose of the meetings is to discuss and plan service projects, fund-raisers and social events, as well as to become familiar with the field of social work through guest speakers from the community and tours of local facilities. All club members are welcome to be on a committee that serves a particular purpose in more depth.


Service Projects

1. “The social worker should retain ultimate responsibility for the quality and extent of the service that an individual assumes, assigns, or performs.”

2. “The social worker should act to prevent practices that are inhumane or discriminatory against any person or group of persons."
