Master of Social Work students are assigned a professional advisor and an academic advisor.
- Students are assigned a faculty member as their professional advisor in their Generalist year. The role of the faculty advisor is to serve as a mentor for the student; providing professional advice to the student and assisting the student in making the best use of their time at the SSW in order for students to begin a path to realize their future professional goals. Students should expect to receive information regarding their assigned professional advisor within the first year of enrollment.
- After the Generalist year, MSW students can choose any faculty member and develop a mentor/mentee professional advising relationship – this arrangement encourages initiative from students and helps them to choose a faculty member who is more closely aligned with their future professional goals.
- The academic advisor for the Athens campus and MSW Online students is Jennifer Elkins. She assists enrolled students with advisement, registration, and graduation matters.
- The academic advisor for the Gwinnett campus students is Constance Wooden-Smith. She assists enrolled students with advisement, registration, and graduation matters. For further questions or inquiries please contact Constance Wooden-Smith in the MSW program Gwinnett campus office at (678) 985-6796 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
