Who We Are
Social Work Champions is an ambassador program that connects prospective and newly admitted students with a current MSW student or MSW alumni. Champions draw upon on their experiences at NYU to highlight the opportunities and benefits of an NYU education.
The Champions were established to provide the Silver School of Social Work at NYU with a group of volunteer students who have the necessary skills to help new and prospective students throughout their application process and serve as mentors.
How to become a champion
Any MSW student is eligible to become a Social Work 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 University feel welcome, Champions develop interpersonal skills and aid prospective MSW students.
