Welcome to the Collaborative Social Work Field Education Web Site! In January 2000, with funding from The University of Missouri, the social work programs in the St. Louis Metropolitan area began developing an innovative field education collaborative project. Using a feminist approach to leadership, The School of Social Work at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, Saint Louis University School of Social Work, The George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University, and our newest partner, Fontbonne University identified a common goal to support field instructors and students in the field experience. This has evolved to include joint field instructor orientation, continuing education events, school social work career fair, an advisory board, a collaborative web site and database, a shared field instructor manual and selected common forms. Since many social workers in our area serve as field instructors for students from all four programs this collaboration has obvious benefits to field instructors and students. We hope this website serves as an added resource for you. Please contact us with any suggestions you may have.
