  • 1.  CSWE's Position on Field Placement Compensation

    Posted 11 days ago
      |   view attached
    Hi all,

    CSWE recently released a statement on field placement compensation. We welcome you to share any thoughts and comments here in Spark.

    Faculty, administrators, and students can reference a recently updated statement on field placements for guidance regarding why these educational experiences are structured as learning—not labor—and are not required to offer stipends or compensation for students. Field placements are courses that afford students the opportunity to engage with clients and communities as a component of their educational program and without a social work license, similarly to educational, medical, or other health professional accredited programs.

    Please see the attached document for the full statement.
