The LAOS PROTOS Student Social Work Organization is a student-led service organization for all Social Work majors. All Social Work students are encouraged to be active in this organization as it provides extracurricular learning activities as well as a chance to develop social relationships with other future Social Work professionals.

Lasting Impact

“I don’t think I can fully put into words the impact that KCU had on my life. I received a great education and had a wonderful athletic experience, but I will always be grateful for the relationships I made. Whether it was the lifelong friendships or the mentoring as both a student and employee, the impact of the people from KCU is something I will proudly carry with me wherever I go.”
