NASW-NC Student Liaison Initiative


The NASW-NC Student Liaison Initiative aims to identify students from each level of social work education in North Carolina who will serve as a link between their respective program and NASW-NC. It is our hope that through this liaison initiative a stronger working relationship will be created between the universities and the NASW-NC Chapter and students will in turn become advocates for the Social Work profession.



  • Be a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW)
  • Liaisons will represent their school for both Fall and Spring semesters.
  • Liaisons may serve longer terms and must select their replacement when graduating.
  • Liaisons must notify NASW-NC if they are unable to continue as a liaison and assist in locating a replacement.

Program Description

  • Student Liaisons will be selected from each BSW and MSW program throughout the State.
  • Liaisons will be a voice for NASW in their respective schools and will distribute information from NASW-NC to both classmates and faculty.
  • Liaisons will be responsible for contacting NASW-NC once a month to learn new information from the NASW-NC Chapter and to inform staff about important information (events, news, etc.) from their school.
  • Promote Student Center section of the NASW-NC website and offer suggestions and feedback on Student Center content and layout to staff.


  • Leadership and networking opportunities with Social Work Students across the state.
  • Free registration fee for Annual Fall Conference in November OR Ethics Conference in March.
  • Recognition of liaisons in NASW-NC newsletter and webpage.
  • Certificate of services from NASW-NC.
  • Liaison status can be used on students’ résumé.
  • Ability to get your work published in the NASW-NC Newsletter, distributed to 4,500 NASW-NC members.
