Alumni Council

The Alumni Council, formerly known as the Alumni Advisory Board, serves as a bridge between Pitt Social Work and the Social Work community. The council is actively committed to:

  • Connecting current students with experienced social work alumni.
  • Promoting career advancement and strategic networking across the Pitt Social Work community.
  • Recognizing alumni excellence through the Distinguished Alumni Awards program.
  • Advancing the impact of the social work profession in the community.

So why become a member?

Alumni join the Alumni Council for many reasons, including the opportunity to:

  • Reconnect with former classmates and meet fellow alumni
  • Share experiences and expertise with current students
  • Give back as an ambassador for Pitt Social Work
  • Take on a leadership roles as Chair, Vice Chair or one of the subcommittee chairs
