Our Students

Our students choose to attend SSW because they see potential in the many opportunities Smith provides. In her Commencement address to the 2016 graduates, Dean Marianne Yoshioka shared how SSW selects and welcomes its students to the SSW family: 

"You were always the students we wanted and you are the alumni we are proud to claim. You are among the most competent and capable. I ask that you remember that all social work is done in relationships. It's done in community. The ones you come from, the ones you live in, and the ones you serve. And the one that is here at Smith. It's a rare thing that we have created and it is here for you."
