Dear MSW Graduate Student:
You are about to embark on what is likely for many to be the most memorable part of the MSW program. It is here that you will have the opportunity to apply knowledge
learned in the classroom. You will be supervised by an experienced MSW and further
supported by a Faculty Field Liaison who will also be your Field Seminar Instructor.
Although many of you have already had extensive work and life experience, you will
now discover new and different perspectives and we hope you will be open to all of
The personal self-reflection and time commitment will present challenges on a regular
basis. It is a time of sacrifice for many of you. However, you will have the support
of your peers, faculty, field instructors, liaison, field director and program chairperson
to assist and support you in any reasonable effort to mitigate barriers to success.
We look forward to working with each of you in your successful achievements in the field.
Dr. Mikal Rasheed,
Director of Field Education
