Dear Field Directors,
Minjoo Morlan, and I, Stephanie Lyons, are Field Faculty members and PhD students at Indiana University. As part of our Qualitative Research course, we are conducting a research study examining MSW field liaisons' perspectives on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as it pertains to students' practicum experiences and how they respond to students' concerns.
We request that you share the below recruitment email with your MSW Field Liaisons, if as part of their responsibilities they have a role of responding to students' and agencies' requests for support or may themselves request student agency meetings to problem-solve and resolve issues of concern to support and advocate for students and agencies.
If you have any questions about the study, please email Minjoo Morlan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Stephanie Lyons at email@example.com.
We would be so grateful for your assistance in recruiting Field Liaisons as participants in this study. Thank you in advance for your support.
