Projects

The Office of Global Social Work (OGSW) was founded as part of the ASU School of Social Work in 2014. Since then, the OGSW has been establishing itself as a hub for global issues awareness within ASU. For the 2017-2018 academic year, student interns assisted in the expansion and strategic planning of the OGSW. As part of the strategic plan, the OGSW will host an Open House on April 30th, 2018, which provides exposure for its ambitious and exciting global collaborative efforts, and introduces the different stakeholders associated with the Office to the local academic community. As part of the expansion, a PAC Student Conference will be also hosted by the OGSW in tandem with the Open House event.
