Field Matters

Three times a year the BSW and MSW Field Education programs send out the Field Matters newsletter. This publication highlights information that is useful for field instructors given the time of year and developmental stage of students. In addition, relevant field education issues, work and experience of students and field instructors, broader social work education and practice topics, and resources are shared to provide a comprehensive perspective of field education.
