Students are assigned a faculty member as their professional advisor in their Generalist year. The role of the faculty advisor is to serve as a mentor for the student; providing professional advice to the student and assisting the student in making the best use of their time at the SSW in order for students to begin a path to realize their future professional goals. After the Generalist year, MSW students can choose any faculty member and develop a mentor/mentee professional advising relationship – this arrangement encourages initiative from students and helps them to choose a faculty member who is more closely aligned with their future professional goals. Faculty field liaisons help students with any issues related to the successful completion of the field internship experience.
