The Social Work Alumni Network (SWAN) serves as a bridge between the University of Texas El Paso Department of Social Work,  the professional social work community, and our Bi-national community at-large by providing recognition of alumni & student excellence, promoting professional networking and development opportunities, advocating for marginalized populations, developing fundraising opportunities for underserved community members and ensuring the continued distinction of the school. The University of Texas El Paso Department of Social Work graduates outstanding students every year.  Our alumni change the world, mentor the next generation of leaders, and embody what it means to be a social worker in the 21st Century.
