Field Education

Plans for Spring Field

As students return for the spring semester, many of our social work students are returning to their in-person placements at field organizations. Students will also continue in fully remote placements, implementing client services and completing agency projects through telepractice and telehealth.

The College is committed to providing a substantive and meaningful field experience for all students, including a plan to address all required competencies and hours. We are also committed to providing a safe field experience for all students. We will continue to monitor the pandemic and make adjustments as necessary to promote student safety and wellbeing.

Students who are completing field onsite at agencies are required to complete daily self-screening and to follow all CDC guidelines for their own protection and the protection of clients and agency staff. Specific information and requirements are included in the Student Guidelines for Field (PDF).

As always, students are encouraged to contact their program Field Coordinators to discuss any questions or concerns regarding field.  Students are urged to carefully monitor the situation in their own communities and field agencies and to contact their Field Coordinators to discuss any changes in their agencies or communities that may affect their safety and field experience.
