Student Spotlights

Are you a Mandel School student doing incredible, unique or impactful work? You could be featured as a Student Spotlight if you submit this form!

We're also highlighting our MSW students' field education practicums, the valuable learning opportunities they're experiencing and the impactful work they're doing in the community to give other students the opportunity to learn more about our community partner organizations and the valuable learning that happens in field education.

Do you know a student having a great learning experience in field education? Fill out this short Field Education Spotlight form. As a first step, the only information needed is the student's name and program format—an email will then be sent to the selected student with more detailed information and next steps.
