Field Hours Reduction for Touro GSSW Students
Dear Dean Huberman, Assistant Dean Galina, Professor Shiffman, and Esteemed Faculty of Touro,
We know that you are working incredibly hard during this very stressful time to ensure we have classes and we appreciate your efforts tremendously. This is a difficult time for us as students as we try to navigate working from home, managing our families, and completing our schoolwork. It is wonderful for graduating seniors that their required hours for field have been reduced; however those of us in our foundation field year still need to compete the full 600 hours for the year. For many of us, this is proving to be quite challenging. Without child care or proper remote assignments, there is little chance of us being able to complete our hours, even going into the summer months.
We are asking for compensatory assignments and reduced hours so we can complete our fieldwork for the year. Please consider the challenges that we are facing as well as the graduating class.
