Community Service Practicum

A distinctive feature of Adler School programs, the Community Service Practicum (CSP) is a requirement for all first-year students at the School. The CSP is unique non-clinical experience, meant to expose future practitioners to concepts of social justice and social change, and to instill in them the ethos and the skill set necessary to engage in socially responsible practice.

Students will spend six months on this practicum. This placement will take place from January through June OR from July through December each year. The number of hours students spend on-site will vary by site and project needs, but a minimum of 8 to 10 hours each week for approximately twenty two weeks (190 to 200 hours) is required for the student to fulfill this requirement.

Community partners develop specific projects in which the students engage. If you are interested in hosting Adler CSP students, please contact us at csp@adler.edu.
