Meet the OFE Staff

Field Education is a cornerstone of all degree programs at Wheelock College.

Why Field Education Matters

Field Education is the primary vehicle for students to:

  • Apply essential knowledge, skills, and behaviors
  • Integrate theory and practice
  • Foster meaningful career pathways

Students learn what it means to make a real difference in their lives as well as the lives of the people with whom they work, primarily in urban settings.

The Office of Field Education - Our Mission

The Office of Field Education (OFE) leverages field-based expertise in a way that strengthens the overall academic experience for students while enhancing their personal and professional goals.

What We Do

  • Customize field placements to student interest and program requirement
  • Enhance the preparedness of students as emerging professionals
  • Implement rigorous field-based standards and processes
  • Ensure mutually beneficial partnerships that exemplify Wheelock's values
  • Utilize best practices in field education to deepen the learning experience for students.

SOCIAL WORK STUDENTS: Field placements for Social Work students are handled by the Social Work Department. Please visit the Social Work Field Education web pages for details.
