- Educational Agreement Due
Educational Agreement is due to the Office of Field Instruction for review.
For this due date, the student must complete and submit their Identifying Information (Tab 1) and their Assignments (Tab 2). The Field Instructor must review and approve Tabs 1 and 2.
The Educational Agreement must be fully approved by the Field Instructor before it is ready for your Field Liaison's approval. Therefore OFI suggests submitting the form to your Field Instructor one week prior to the deadline. This gives the Field Instructor time to review and approve your work before the deadline.

- Social Work and Sport
A growing body of research documents the positive health and mental health benefits of participating in organized sports. While much of the current research is focused on youth participation in sports, there is also evidence of how participation in sports can benefit people across the age range and from different ethic and socioeconomic groups. This 2 day mini-course will discuss how social work values, concepts, and interventions on both the micro and macro levels can enhance sport activities. Specific strategies such as, strength-based coaching, teambuilding, conflict resolution, family collaboration, diversity training, community engagement, advocacy, and policy development will be discussed. Model interdisciplinary programs that serve at-risk youth, older adults, and other special populations will be highlighted. Through discussion and group projects, students will apply social work competencies including, assessment, engagement, intervention, research, and evaluation to this emerging practice area.
