Welcome to the UW-Stevens Point Field Education Program
Field education is central to the development of competent, humane, knowledgeable, skilled, and effective social workers. It allows opportunities for applying classroom content and experiences to professional situations, developing and evaluating student readiness for professional practice, and developing collaborative partnerships among students, professionals, and university faculty.
The purpose of this site is to provide information and resources to students and to the community professionals who agree to provide their field education supervision. Note to Field Supervisors: Once you have reviewed the information on this site, please complete and return the Orientation Verification Form available below.

Introduction to Social Work at UW-Stevens Point (Video)
To help field supervisors understand the UW-Stevens Point Social Work Program, how field education fits in, and the roles and responsibilities those involved, two voice-over power point presentations have been developed. The modules are relatively short, and together can be viewed in 50 minutes. If after viewing them you have questions or concerns, you can find more detailed information in the Field Education Manual, or you can contact the UWSP Social Work Field Coordinator.
