ROSTER OF FIELD EDUCATION AGENCIES

Agencies and organizations used for Asbury University practicum education are listed alphabetically. Due to unpredictable organizational and staff changes, there may be semesters in which agencies are temporarily unable to accept students in placement. Availability of individual agencies is subject to change without notice.  Students are encouraged to explore practicum related interests with the student's Faculty Advisor, with other students who have completed a practicum in an agency of interest and with the Director of Field Education.  Students with particular concerns related to their placement assignments should confer with their Faculty Advisor and with the Director of Field Education prior to the due date for submission of their practicum application.  The following list of approved field education sites is not conclusive.  Please feel free to talk with the Director of Field Education about any personal interests not represented in the following list.
