Resources for Field Agencies

The field education office welcomes inquiries from agencies and programs interested in hosting social work students. We are eager to form meaningful and mutually rewarding partnerships with agencies to prepare students for a career in the social work profession. If you believe your agency has appropriate social work learning opportunities and a commitment to supporting field education, please contact us. You will find additional information below about establishing your agency as a field practicum site.
