We are interested in learning more about the needs of your agency or program. Our staff carefully match students with placements that fit their learning objectives. Please contact Nancy Chertok, Director of Field Education at 773.702.1178 to discuss field placement opportunities.

SSA attracts and prepares the most able social work and social welfare professionals in the field. Our students learn the most recent theories and practice of social work and social service. Your agency or program can complement their classroom instruction with practical work-place experiences. In turn, you will get the benefit of having intelligent, innovative, and capable students complement and augment your staff.

“SSA has set me on the path toward gaining the skills and knowledge I need as a social worker. It has given me a professional identity, a network of motivated advocates, and a way to channel my passion by opening me to a variety of experiences.”
