What does an NASW-Illinois Chapter Student Liaison do?

  • Liaisons serve as a vital point of contact between the NASW-Illinois Chapter and schools. Liaisons will help with the organizing and promotion of possible trips to campus by the NASW-Illinois Chapter for candid talks with students identifying student needs as well as presentations about NASW membership, licensure, and networking events.
  • Liaisons also serve as contacts for their school for the annual Advocacy Day which will take place in spring 2018 (exact date TBA). Since a date cannot be announced until the spring legislative session is announced, student liaisons will help keep their school abreast of important news relating to Advocacy Day as well as organizing their school attendees on the day of the event.

The following schools still need a liaison: 

  • Chicago State University
  • DePaul University
  • Illinois State University
  • Southern Illinois University Carbondale
  • Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
  • University of Chicago SSA
  • University of Illinois at Chicago
  • University of Illinois at Springfield
