School of Social Work (SSW) field instruction presents you with multiple opportunities to become a part of the professional social work community, where you will learn to integrate classroom knowledge with practice and develop your social work skills and identity. Field instruction provides an opportunity to participate in "hands-on" meaningful service and gain invaluable professional experience.
The SSW Office of Field Instruction (OFI) has over 550 fieldwork sites primarily in Southeast Michigan, but also in locations across the country and around the world with 750 licensed professional social workers who will mentor and help prepare you for a career in the social work field.
Social work students work closely with OFI Field Faculty to identify placement sites appropriate to curriculum objectives, learning goals and individual interests.
Educational Agreement is due to the Office of Field Instruction for review by 5:00 p.m.
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.
