Master of Social Work Field Education Department
The primary role of the Master of Social Work (MSW) Field Education Department is to match students in the graduate social work program with approved internship sites and supervisors as well as recruit sites, to orient supervisors to Lesley's social work program, and provide ongoing support and troubleshooting around any concerns that arise during the internship experience.
Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., although individual appointments should be scheduled, as the director's schedule may fluctuate at times.
Elaine M. Gatewood, Social Work Field Director, is working remotely during the pandemic. Otherwise, her office is University Hall 2-095.
Students should reach out to Elaine with any questions about their internship, in particular, the internship/approval selection process. Concerns that arise during an internship can be directed to our office as well as to the field seminar faculty member, as outlined in the course syllabus and Master Social Work Field Manual.
The best way to reach Elaine is by email: email@example.com.
