This issue is dedicated to noted field education scholar Marion Bogo, who, sadly, died last fall. We remember Marion for her groundbreaking contributions to social work education, especially in the area of assessment of student competence. In this issue, we reprint a 2013 interview of Marion by Trudy Zimmerman. (Trudy is the former director of field education at Boston University.) Although the interview occurred nearly 10 years ago, the editorial team was struck by its profound relevance for today’s learning environment. We also honor Marion’s scholarship by dedicating this issue’s “What We’re Reading” section exclusively to Marion’s publications.

Challenging times continue to shape the landscape for social work field education. As we slowly return to a new normal, the devastation of the pandemic is still a reality in the daily lives of our community of students and educators. Moreover, oppressive legislation in states such as Florida and Texas, aiming to marginalize and harm LGBTQ+ children and families, also creates serious ethical conflicts for all social workers, including student social workers and their field instructors. Internationally, we are witnessing a horrific war that demands a humanitarian response in which social workers play an important role both globally and locally. Tuggle and Banks’ article “From Abstraction to Clarity: Centering Human Rights in Field Education” has special relevance for today’ s challenges.

Finally, on a celebratory note, we congratulate Dr. Lisa Street, coordinator of field education at Evangel University. Dr. Street is the winner of the 2021 Field Educator prize for Excellence in Field Education Scholarship. Her article, “Field Educators as Professional Gatekeepers: A Qualitative Study of Gatekeeping Influences,” was published in the Fall 2021 issue.
