Field Educator Reception

Outstanding Field Educator Award Clock.

At our annual Field Educator Reception, the School of Social Work honors the significant contributions made by all of our field educators who supervise MSW students in their field placements.

It is an opportunity to express our appreciation for your commitment to our students, our school and to the social work profession.

Each year, we recognize our field educators with the Outstanding Achievement in Field Education award. The 2022-23 award recipients are:

  • Faustina Palmatier, Karen Society of Buffalo
  • Jamali Moses, Humanities Prep Academy (Online Program)

Students are invited to nominate their field educators for this prestigious award based on established criteria relating to their characteristics in the role as field educator. All nominees are acknowledged and honored at the reception.
