Resources for Students in the Field

Area Coordinators

Smith SSW alums from across the country serve as area coordinators. Connecting with the coordinator in your placement region is a great way to meet local Smith SSW alums and discover resources in the area.


Smith SSW listservs are intended to help Smith SSW alums communicate with each other. Current students looking for help or information from the listserv — such as therapy referrals or housing resources — should contact their local moderator, who will make a post on their behalf.
