BSW Field Education and Forms
BSW Field Education Coordinator: Kathleen Scheuerle, LMSW
The School of Social Work is responsible for developing supervised student practice opportunities that allow for this integration of competencies and coursework in our communities. The field office is responsible for monitoring and reporting on aggregate student progress in practice so as to affect the development of curriculum that more fully prepares students for the realities of competent day to day practice. Field faculty works closely with directors of the BSW and MSW programs to review student preparation in courses and provides ongoing feedback regarding student and field instructor progress in attainment of competency in assigned professional practice behaviors.
