North American Network of Field Educators and Directors (NANFED)

Mission Statement


NANFED’s Mission is to:

Promote and safeguard the wellbeing of field education within the Council on Social Work Education, in schools of social work, and in community agencies.

We do this by:

  • Stimulating field education scholarship, fostering the development of suitable field education standards, and promoting the development of local field directors’ consortia.
  • Sponsoring the annual Heart of Social Work Award and hosting NANFED’s annual reception at the CSWE Annual Program Meeting.
