The UQ Social Work Society aims to bring together undergraduate, masters and postgraduate Social Work students; and to create a social work presence and community at UQ St Lucia that enables support, advocacy, representation and empowerment.
In 2018, a group of like-minded Social Work students noticed a lack of community, within a degree that is dedicated to the importance of social bonds and inclusion. With this, we set out to establish a society that would foster a social work presence, providing support and community.
UQSWS works to provide a space for social work students to connect and network, through our own professional development events, social gatherings and other relevant events. We also partner with outside professionals and events within the larger Brisbane community
