Resources for GSSW Alumni
At the Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW), we’re a family. That doesn’t change when you graduate. Even if you live far from campus, there are lots of ways to stay connected — continuing education and special events live-streamed from campus, following us on social media, recruiting students and more.
Connect with GSSW and other alumni on social media. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and the University of Denver Pioneer Connect alumni networking community.
Become an adjunct instructor or field education partner, or share your experience as a guest lecturer in a classroom. You can provide clinical supervision to recent grads in your region, too.
Introduce your agency or organization to GSSW’s Field Education Program. After two years of practice, you may be able to supervise a current student in the field as well.
Support admissions by helping to recruit prospective students. Or, serve on a GSSW committee or board.
Keep us up to date on your career, family, hobbies and the ways you are making an impact in your community.
Pay it forward by helping others achieve a GSSW education through financial support of programs and scholarships.

A Conversation: Reparations as Community Wealth Building
The extraction and brutal exploitation of black and indigenous people was a feat of social engineering, a project that took centuries to unfold and centuries to dismantle. As these systems of radicalized oppression are drawing to an end, we have the opportunity to reengineer long- term, sustainable processes of repair, while transferring wealth and power in ways that not only regenerate individuals but our larger ecological community as well. This event will gather repairationists and community wealth builders from Denver to share the innovative models that are ushering in the era of great healing and restoration. This conversation is led by Asia Dorsey.

“Don’t Work for It” Rest as Reparations workshop
This workshop brings us into the nexus of healing justice and reparations using yoga as an articulation of liberation theology. Drawing from the archival research of Tricia Hershey of the Nap Ministry and the practice of Yoga Nidra from the lineage of Yogi Amrit Desai, participants will learn how to deconstruct dominant narratives about labor while experiencing the bliss that emerges for free from their own bodies in an engaging and moving lecture.

Colorado Licensed Clinical Social Worker Preparation
GSSW's Licensure Preparation Study Sessions will help you prepare for the social work licensing exam. Taught by a GSSW alumnus, the course includes thinking skills, test-taking strategies and how to approach the exam questions, and it reviews each of the four primary knowledge/content areas:
- Human development, diversity and behavior in the environment
- Assessment, diagnosis and treatment planning
- Psychotherapy, clinical interventions and case management
- Professional ethics and values
After the content review for each section, the class discusses the correct answer and rationale for practice questions. This format will allow you to identify your strengths and weaknesses. You’ll also have an opportunity to practice with questions from the Association of Social Work Boards group practice exam.
Each session takes place on a single weekend: Friday night (6:00–8:00 p.m.) and Saturday (9 a.m.–5 p.m.) in Craig Hall.
Check availability and sign up for 2020 licensure prep sessions.Sign Up
