The Doctoral Student Organization (DSO) is the student leadership entity for students in the School of Social Work doctoral program. It supports and enhances the academic and personal achievement of social work doctoral students throughout their tenure at the University of Pittsburgh by providing a forum for scholarly presentations, collegial support, free exchange of ideas, discussion of critical issues, and acculturation into the world of academia.
Students in the School of Social Work doctoral program serve DSO directly through membership in the DSO leadership team and through membership as doctoral student representatives on various School of Social Work committees.
