IU School of Social Work is headquartered on the IUPUI campus with locations on 8 IU Campuses. The school also has the Department of Labor Studies
The BSW program has a Dean's list to recognize student excellence. The policy, as approved by the Faculty in 1997, reads as follows:
Each year, graduating students who rank in the upper 10 percent of their graduating class are recognized by graduating with Distinction (Highest, High, and With Distinction). These students are awarded specially colored "cords" which they wear attached to the shoulder of their graduation gowns during the commencement ceremony.
Students who have completed the first semester of the junior year social work courses with an overall GPA of 3.50 or higher (on a 4.0 scale) and a GPA of 3.50 or higher in required social work classes are invited to join the Phi Alpha Honor Society. All courses from the student's undergraduate career, including courses taken from other higher education institutions, are included in the overall GPA calculation.
