Field Instruction Recognition Awards

Graduates of social work programs often report that the most influential person in their social work education is their field instructor. In order to recognize, thank and honour our field instructors who give freely of their time and expertise to our students, the School holds an appreciation ceremony every three years.

Individual field instructors will be presented with an award for educating students two out of three years. Agencies will receive an award for placing students in each of three consecutive years. Interim years, the School will provide an informal thank-you lunch for all field instructors following a Field Forum. The next Appreciation Ceremony will be a breakfast event scheduled for October 21, 2016 from 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. in the Great Hall, University Club.
