A survey of 64 field instructors was conducted regarding their perceptions of the role of the faculty field liaison. Information was solicited regarding: (a) Field instructors' descriptions of the liaison role, and (b) their perceptions of the liaison's role performance. Although the role of the faculty field liaison was generally viewed in a positive light, field instructors' perceptions and expectations for the liaison were extremely diverse. The findings raise certain questions about faculty field liaisons, the adequacy of training, and the extent to which poor role performance constitutes a problem.
