The Student Representative role was created to enable school social work students to participate in the practices and duties of the Executive Board of the Michigan Association of School Social Workers. The student representative role is intended to serve as a method for sharing best practices and information regarding state polices and mandates in the educational environment as well as communicating the mission of MASSW to students at their universities.
Student Representatives are referred by their university and appointed by the MASSW Board for two year terms. Students will play an active role in the decision-making and policy-setting practices for school social workers at the local and state level. Students work on behalf of their cohort to represent their views to MASSW while collaborating and networking with school social workers around the state.
