Field Forms

The University of St. Francis’s Department of Social Work thanks you and your organization for accepting our BSW/MSW student interns. Field education is viewed as a unique partnership between the university and community agencies with the purpose of designing, implementing, and monitoring sound educational programs for BSW and MSW students. The University Of St. Francis Department of Social Work relies on the evidence-based field instruction model. This model requires that selected social service agencies allow sufficient time for qualified agency staff to work with students and USF’s Department of Social Work. This partnership is dynamic and responsive to changes in agency environments, while providing the student with an opportunity to gain real-world experience in the field of social work. These experiences are the foundation for effective and innovative evidence-based practice skills.
