Phi Alpha Honor Society for Social Work

On March 14, 2017 the FIFSW launched Chi Delta, our own chapter within the International Phi Alpha Social Work Honor Society. Please see the Chi Delta brochure for further details.



The purpose of the Phi Alpha Honor Society is to provide a closer bond among students of social work and promote humanitarian goals and ideas.

Phi Alpha fosters high standards of education for social workers and invites into membership those who have attained excellence in scholarship and achievement in social work.
