I'm Bonnie Rinks, LCSW, ACSW, Director of Field Education for Social Work at USI. I joined USI in fall of 2015. Prior to joining USI I was chair Of Human Services at Ivy Tech Community College, Evansville campus.   

I have been a clinical social worker for over 20 years with my clinical focus being primarily children, adolescents, geriatric and leadership.  In 2005 I began working in administration and management of a large community mental health center which served over 10,000 patients per year. My duties were managing federal and state grants, supervising clinical staff, and developing and launching new clinical programs in addition to continuing my clinical practice.

I am dedicated to the field of social work and to the education of others pursuing this noble profession. I believe that it does not matter from where you come. It matters where you are going!  I am happy to part of your journey.
