    Selecting an Organization
    It is critical that you identify an organization willing to work with you in order to successfully complete the work in the residency. You should start contacting organizations now to determine if they are willing to collaborate with you on a program project. It is recommended that you contact at least one to three organizations this week to ensure you have enough time and organizations to select from before having to complete your Site Permission Letter in Unit 7.
    The organizations you contact do not have to be the perfect organization for your dissertation or capstone project. However, they should be reasonable environments for your dissertation or capstone project to take place in. The key thing for this week is to start making contacts and have a good idea of a handful or organizations that you could acceptably base your work and discussions at your residency around.
    Consult the Site Permission resource page for further information about obtaining site permissions.
