This article presents evaluation findings on an innovative field placement agency that extends the traditional social work internship by incorporating principles of service learning and civic engagement. Qualitative and quantitative student outcome data are presented on the learning experiences of MSW students placed in traditional agency field placements with those placed in a university developed generalist field placement agency. The implications of the findings for social work field education are discussed. (Contains 1 figure and 3 tables.)
