Potential Practicum Agencies

The list includes agencies that have provided practicum opportunities for KU School of Social Welfare students in the recent past. Please take this opportunity to review the variety of programs and client populations served by these agencies. The placement process and availability of practicum agencies is such that we cannot guarantee that the agencies posted here will have practicum opportunities in future academic years. We do, however, make every effort to match students with agencies that align with their interests.

As detailed in the Field Education Handbook, students are not to contact agencies regarding a potential practicum. If you have interest in a specific agency, please contact the Associate Director for your campus: Kelly Jones (Lawrence), Cathy Accurso (Edwards/KCKCC), or Christina Boyd (Western Kansas). If you do not see a placement of interest listed in your geographic area, please note that this list is only a representation of the types of placements available. Our Associate Directors will work with you to find a placement that meets your needs, regardless of whether or not it currently appears on this list.
