Warm Welcome from your President and Vice President


Hello CSUDH MSW family!

I would like to send my warmest welcome to you all. Whether you are a first-year student, returning second-year student, or a graduating c/o 2019 student (woot! woot!). I know it’s that time of the semester where things are starting to kick into full gear. Don’t overwhelm yourself, remember to breathe, and make time for relaxation and self-care. Don’t forget that your organization the Graduate Association of Social Work (GASW), is here for you especially when you need a break from the hustle and bustle of this program. There is no doubt that we wouldn’t prevail, but it will be a better and more enjoyable experience if we do it together. Let’s make this an amazing and unforgettable year…Cheers to a wonderful 2018-2019!

Derrick Harding

GASW President
