nominated field educators.

2017-2018 Nominated Field Educators

By Jim Bisco


The School of Social Work's depth of community-based research is navigated toward the heart of myriad social problems via the work of faculty, students and community members themselves. At the same time, introducing the budding social worker into real-world practice via experiential field education can be of paramount influence.

In a ceremony last spring, exceptional work in those two worlds was lauded, as it is annually, in the form of Excellence in Research (EIR) awards and Field Educator of the Year honors, bestowed upon recipients who have made substantial inroads in study and mentorship. Herewith are those who were honored and their stories.
