Who We Are

The Silver School of Social Work at New York University, in an effort to create dialogue between current and future students, and build on its identity as an intimate educational institution within NYU, has an ambassador program known as the 'Champions.'

Silver Champions is an ambassador program that connects prospective and newly admitted students with a current MSW student or MSW alumni. Champions draw upon their experiences to highlight the opportunities and benefits of an NYU education.

The Champions group was established to provide the Silver School with a group of student volunteers who have the necessary skills to help newly admitted and prospective students throughout the application process and to serve as mentors.

How to become a champion

We are actively searching for current MSW students to join the Champions program for the 2019- 2020 academic year! Students from all programs and campuses are encouraged to apply.

Any MSW student is eligible to become a Silver Champion. Students are encouraged to get involved early to maintain relationships throughout their time in the program and beyond.

Champions are friendly, committed, and enthusiastic about sharing their NYU Silver stories and experiences. Beyond the satisfaction they gain by making guests to the School feel welcome, Champions develop interpersonal skills and aid prospective MSW students.
