Field Agency Affiliations

The Office of Field Education currently has over three hundred affiliations with agencies/ institutions in the Texas-Mexico Border including but not limited to the Rio Grande Valley, Brownsville, and Laredo. We also have some available agencies in San Antonio, and Corpus Christi. Nevertheless, the availability for placement at those agencies may change each semester, so placement within those agencies is not guaranteed by the Office of Field Education.

Agency Affiliation Process:  Agencies serving as field placement for the School of Social Work must have a current affiliation with the UTRGV College of Health Affairs (COHA). Agency affiliation can be initiated in several ways. An agency who desires to have social work interns can contact the office of Field Education or the School of Social Work for more information.
