Alliance for Student Social Workers

We are a student led organization at NEIU that provides an opportunity for students to engage in advocacy and lobbying on campus and in our communities.

It is entirely student-run and provides an opportunity for students to engage in advocacy and lobbying at the University and beyond. It also serves as a place to socialize and connect with peers and create lifelong community allies and partners.
