  • Congratulations to all who have secured a FWT site! We wish you a great Field Work Term. Please feel free to contact the FWT & CDO at fwt@bennington.edu or x4321 (802-440-4321 from off campus) if you need any help now or during FWT. We are here to answer any questions, help you problem-solve issues that may arise, and/or celebrate your successes. Best of luck!
  • For those who have yet to register, please meet with Erica Walsh as soon as possible to discuss your FWT circumstances. Students who have not registered for FWT by Friday, January 16, 2015, will receive a failing grade for the term and will be required to complete a summer makeup FWT.
  • Once your registration is received, we will email your supervisor(s) a confirmation letter. They must respond in order for you to be fully registered, so be in touch with them if you haven’t already to let them know to expect this correspondence from the College. We will also email your faculty advisor to receive approval if your FWT plans differ from those submitted in your FWT Proposal form this fall. If we don't receive confirmation from your supervisor or approval from your advisor, or if the FWT director doesn't approve your site, we will be in touch with you to clarify the necessary revisions to your FWT plans. As such, please check your emails daily during the last weeks of fall term classes.
  • After receiving confirmation from your employer, and site approval from your faculty advisor and FWT director, in early December the FWT & CDO will send you an email containing your registration confirmation along with important information about the term. If you do not receive this confirmation before the end of classes of Friday, December 12, or have questions about the information you receive, please contact Lauren MacPherson in the FWT & CDO.
  • Students wishing to add a primary job to their already-registered FWT may do so by submitting the necessary information to the FWT & CDO through WorkLink no later than Friday, January 16, 2015.
  • Information about FWT policy including clarification about primary and supplemental hours can be found in the FWT Handbook. Additionally, all FWT documents, including timesheets, are available in the document library of WorkLink.
  • Housing lists and pertinent information are also listed in the document library section of WorkLink.
  • An overview of the Reflective Project Options can be found online, here. Please review as some projects, including blogging, require students to notify the FWT & CDO in January, 2015.
  • Further updates and notifications throughout FWT will be sent to your Bennington email addresses, so check frequently. Students are expected to stay available for communication from the College over FWT and are responsible for information sent to them. If you will not have access to your Bennington email account over FWT, please contact the FWT & CDO with alternate contact information.
