More than 10,000 people have graduated from the School of Social Work's MSW, PhD, BSW, and BA/BS programs since the School's founding in 1946. We are proud of the many contributions our alumni have made to the field of social work, to their communities, and to other chosen careers. Alumni support the School in many ways, including:

  • Encouraging prospective students to attend UW-Madison
  • Making financial contributions (Donate Here!)
  • Identifying job opportunities and serving as contacts for new graduates entering the job market
