Michael Lynch, LMSW
Michael Lynch, LMSW, is an assistant clinical professor for field education at the University at Buffalo School of Social Work. He works with the field department, placing students with relevant agencies so they will have both a meaningful impact and experience. His focus stems from his belief that field work is a bridge to connect both students and the school with people, agencies and community—to work being done on the ground; giving students the opportunity to offer real help directly to those who need it, and to apply their classroom learning in real-life situations.
Before assuming his current position, Lynch spent a number of years working with the field department in various capacities, including as a faculty liaison and a field educator. Additionally, he brings experience working in a variety of social work settings including urban education, program development, child welfare and community collaborations.
