Faculty field liaisons

The Faculty Field Liaison is a member of the school staff or faculty who serves as a liaison between the student, the field instructor, and the staff of the field placement site. Each student is assigned a Faculty Field Liaison upon starting a field placement. The Faculty Field Liaison meets with the field instructor and student to specify and clarify assignments and concerns, assess student process recordings, make recommendations to the Office of Field Education, review student evaluations, and grade the student in field work. The Faculty Field Liaison can also discuss career plans with students and suggest courses that will enhance employment options. 

The Faculty Field Liaison will make a minimum of two field visits per academic year for students in full-time and part-time BSW and MSW programs. Should a problem arise with a student's progress or with the agency environment, the faculty field liaison will work with the student and field instructor to create a corrective action plan.
