Annual Placement Planning Fair

Thank you for your commitment to social work education! The Annual Placement Planning Fair is a full-day event for the students in the first year of CSSW's Two-Year Program. It takes place every February in Lerner Hall, on the Columbia University main campus. Field agencies who are interested in recruiting our students as interns set up information tables. We encourage the students to talk with agency representatives and collect information so that they can make an informed decision on where to do their second-year placements. Agencies are invited to participate in the Fair via an e-mail sent out in December.

The Next Annual Placement Planning Fair

The 2016 Annual Placement Planning Fair will take place on Monday, February 1, 2016, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., at Lerner Hall, 2920 Broadway (115th Street and Broadway).

This assists the department in planning for the number of available student placements and methods (Direct Practice, Advanced Clinical Practice, Policy, Advanced Generalist Practice and Programming, and Social Enterprise Administration) that you can accommodate for the 2016-2017 academic year. It also provides essential information on the number of licensed Field Instructors who will need the Seminar in Field Instruction (SIFI) beginning in September.
