Field Faculty

All-School partyThe Field Education faculty is comprised of approved Field Instructors and Task Supervisors. These important people supervise student interns in various internships and situations. They give of their time and their knowledge and without them, Field Education would not be possible.

Once the Field Education office receives a completed Field Instructor Information Sheet or Task Supervisor Information Sheet, the approval process for new supervisors begins. The Director(s) of Field Education review the information and the Social Work faculty vote. Once a positive majority vote is reached, the approved supervisor is entered in to the Baylor University Human Resources system and is considered auxiliary personnel.
