About Us

Social Work Student Resource Room

The Resource Room, located in Mariposa Hall, Room 5030, offers students access to community resources, our peer mentoring program, quiet study space, and a lending library containing current textbooks and other relevant information.

Peer Mentoring

Peer mentors are student volunteers who provide organized support, resources, and information to peers who may be experiencing difficulties with field placements, classes, faculty members, or personal issues. Peer mentoring is NOT therapy and should not be considered a replacement for therapy or counseling from a licensed practitioner. For professional counseling services, please contact Sac State Counseling and Psychological Services at (916) 278-6416 to make an appointment. For more info on Peer Mentoring, please email swsasacstate@gmail.com.


SWSA works tirelessly to advocate for the needs of the entire student body through the work of SWSA Officers and elected Student Representatives who serve on committees within the Division of Social Work. Whether expressing grievances on behalf of students, petitioning for open computer lab hours, or securing a student resource room, the SWSA is here to support students’ needs, concerns, and ideas!

Events and Activities

SWSA strives to provide members with numerous opportunities to participate in activities and events that enhance social work skills and knowledge, foster a sense of community and peer support, and develop leadership skills. Such opportunities include monthly meetings, guest speaker forums, community service projects, student mixers, the annual NASW Legislative Lobby Days, and so much more! See our calendar for more information!
