Dear MSW Students:

Welcome to the Academic Services Center (ASK, a student-centered service available as a starting place for questions and concerns that you may encounter as a member of the SSW community.

It is my hope that ASK will provide you with much more than the information to be found on this website.  In addition to this page and its links, ASK is a place - staffed with real people. As coordinator of this program, I welcome you to stop in to see me on the third floor of the Palace Road building. I am here to answer questions, listen to your concerns, and "triage" your needs.

ASK will be hosting events throughout the year in an effort to reach out to students and offer support.  Please stop in anytime to meet us — you are the reason we are here, and we are eager to know you.

Best wishes,

Kathy Lopes, M.S.W.
Coordinator, Academic Services Center
