INSURANCE CERTIFICATE REQUESTS

Loyola University Chicago's Risk Management Office can provide proof of professional liability insurance coverage for undergraduate and graduate students who are actively enrolled in the BSW and MSW programs, and who are currently completing an organized field placement/internship in partnership with the School of Social Work. The university provides documentation for this insurance coverage by issuing certificates of liability insurance upon request. If an organization/agency needs documentation of this coverage, please contact Hilary Gilway (hgilway@luc.edu) or Sylvia Corcoran (scorcoran@luc.edu) to process the request. Requests are directed to the Risk Management Office for processing and then certificates are sent to agency contacts through e-mail.

FIELD INSTRUCTOR TRAINING & CEU OPPORTUNITIES

Field Instructors that are currently supervising a student are eligible to apply for CEU's.  Field Instructors can submit a request for CEU’s for Supervision online or by mail. Please see the links above for those options. Please note: a Field Instructor can only receive 45 CEUs for supervision, once, per each level of field. For example, if you received 45 CEU’s for supervising a 530-531 student, you may also receive 45 CEUs for supervising a 630-631 2nd level student and a 640-641 post-master student. You cannot receive additional CEU's after previously receiving 45 CEU's for supervising a student at each level.
