The BASW Club is the student leadership organization for all BASW majors. The BASW Program has a very active social work club. The Club is designed to promote and enhance the development of the academic and social aims and interests of the students in the BASW Program. The BASW Club also promotes student and community interest in and interaction with the School of Social Work. The BASW Club has no dues. When students enter the BASW Major, they are automatically members of the BASW Club. While participation is not mandatory, it is highly recommended.

2016-2017 BASW Club Leadership
President: Saskia Berrios-Thomas
Hello! My name is Saskia Berrios-Thomas and I'm very happy to be serving as president of the BASW club this year. I am a current junior in the BASW program with a minor in economics and a certificate in public and professional writing. Upon graduation, I hope to go to graduate school and eventually work in sexual assault prevention and program development. I have completed two independent research projects on sexual assault prevention, as well as worked with various professors on other research projects. Currently I volunteer as a peer educator with Pitt's Sexual Harrassment and Assault Response and Education office. I also volunteer at the criminal and family courthouses with my therapy dog, Mikey. I also work as a student worker at the School of Pharmacy and as a student worker for Professor Mulvaney in the School of Social Work. In my free time, I ride my horse, Duncan, and spend time with my family and friends. I'm really looking forward to what the BASW club will accomplish in the coming year!
