Portion of article:
Some schools are trying to make it easier for students to participate in global interactions. A few years ago, faculty at the University at Buffalo School of Social Work in New York decided to alter the structure of field placements to give students the opportunity to do their placements abroad. So far, students have chosen to do international field placements in several countries, including Thailand, South Korea, and Tanzania.

“This is an opportunity for our most exceptional students,” says Laura Lewis, PhD, LCSW, ACSW, director of field education at the University at Buffalo School of Social Work. “They know that this is what they want to do and are willing to overcome the barriers. They tend to be a different breed of students—very passionate [and] not easily deterred.”
