Ms. Stuehm serves on various committees and boards both on and off the UNK campus. She teaches the Human Behavior in the Social Environment I & II, Aging Services, Child Welfare, and the Field Placement Seminar. Ms. Stuehm is also the Field Placement Coordinator and works closely with community and state agencies to ensure the best field placement experience for graduating students.
