The School for Social Work has many volunteer opportunities for alumni in admissions, the Alumni Association, the Alumni Student Network, regional activities and fundraising.

Where You're Needed

Office of Admission

Prospective students can benefit from the expertise, experience and advice of those who have gone before them. Alumni volunteers act as links to the School, providing prospective students with information such as facts about the School, details about the field of social work, thoughts and perceptions of student life, personal experiences and your career path since graduating from Smith.

For more information, contact the Admissions Office.

Alumni Association

Governed by the Executive Committee, the Alumni Association creates a strong sense of community and tradition, enriches the personal, professional and cultural lives of our alumni and students and supports services to the College.

Alumni interested in serving on the Executive Committee should contact the Office of Alumni Relations and Development at (413) 585-4290 or

Alumni Student Network/Regional Activities

The Alumni Student Network is a supportive group of alumni interconnected across the United and Canada.

Area Coordinators (AC) are key liaisons between students, alumni, and the School. ACs work under the leadership of the Ofice of Alumni Relations and Development to maintain and facilitate local activities.

Area Coordinators are provided with lists of services that their local alumni are willing to offer, such as those who are willing to call students, host events, be mentors and more. Students and alumni are notified of the Area Coordinator for their geographic area.


Alumni volunteers play a crucial role in keeping the School fiscally strong. Dedicated volunteers work with development staff to encourage alumni support of the School through giving to the Alumni Association Annual Fund. To find out how you can help the School raise funds and remain a leader in clinical social work education, contact the Office of Alumni Relations and Development at (413) 585-4290 or
